These are difficult times for everyone in our State.  Challenging times reveal the true character of an individual as well as an organization.


How we react to these times will define the Legacy of the Knights of Columbus for years to come.

What is your council doing to assist your parish and local community during these difficult times? 


Share your story with your brother Knights and help inspire them to do the same.

Queen of Peace Residence Supplies


On March 23rd Council 206 in Binghamton rallied to help out one of their local food pantries.  The Broome County Council of Churches CHOW program had recently asked for donations to help with their five day meal kits.  This is a new program by CHOW in answer to the covid-19 outbreak.  These to-go boxes will be delivered to anyone who is under quarantine or whose regular food pantry is closed.

An email went out to all Council members and the response was swift and virtually unanimous.  Thanks to Council 206’s efforts, CHOW received a $1000 check from the council to help with this important and potentially life-saving program.

Well done, brothers!

See the newscast that started it below….




Our very own Bert Olechnowicz is serving aboard the USNS Comfort which is headed to NYC to help with badly needed medical services there.


Please keep him and all of his crew-mates in your prayers.

we should be proud of our brother Knight, and all the Brother Knights who are risking it all for the benefit of us.
