Who Are The Knights of Columbus?

Knights of Columbus are Catholic gentlemen committed to the exemplification of charity, unity, fraternity, patriotism, and defense of the priesthood. The Order is consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Order is unequivocal in its loyalty to the Pope, the Vicar of Christ on earth. It is firmly committed to the protection of human life, from conception to natural death, and to the preservation and defense of the family. Brother Knights work to fulfill the central mission of the Order: striving in charitable works; serving the Church and unified in following its teachings; supporting brother Knights in their temporal and spiritual needs; acting for the good of their country; and giving aid to widows, orphans, the sick and the poor.

Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference.

Dexter Council #2959 History

Council 2959 Building The Dexter Council was established in 1946 with 52 Charter Members. Martin Farrell was elected the First Grand Knight. The Council owned a building downtown which housed Ziegler's Meat Market on the ground floor, and the KofC Hall above it. The building was next to the present day Dexter Pharmacy. The rent from the meat market paid the mortgage. In 1978 through the efforts of many of the members, a new hall was built on Dexter-Chelsea Rd. As of 2009 the Council has a membership of over 160 men.
