About Our Council


Council  #112 traces its origins back to March 17, 1895 when a group of thirty-nine Catholic men from both St. John the Evangelist and Sacred Heart parishes were granted a charter by the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council. Dennis Donovan served for two years as the first Grand Knight. The Council worked closely in support of four Church's in Concord: Immaculate Heart of Mary on Loudon Road, as well as St. John the Evangelist, St. Peter's and Sacred Heart. Since the Catholic Church has gone through many changes within the State of New Hampshire, the Diocese of Manchester has closed Sacred Heart and St. Peter's Church's, and the two remaining, Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. John's (now Christ The King) are the last two remaining Catholic Church's in Concord, that Council #112 supports, in addition to the Carmelite Monastery on Pleasant Street. Council 112 provides funds for various projects such as memorials, CCD programs, scholarships for local students, tournaments, communion breakfasts, Special Olympics, cancer research, Operation Santa Claus, and visiting hospital patients. Members are active participants in their respective parishes as organists, cantors, lectors, ushers, teachers, and Eucharistic Ministers.


The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic lay organization, with more than 1.7 million members in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean and the Philippines and Poland. Last year, the Knights donated more than $139 million and over 64 million hours of volunteer time to charity.

Concord Council #112 Celebrates 125th Anniversary on March 17th

Concord Council #112 celebrated its Anniversary on May 17th, after 125 years of service to the Capital City of Concord, New Hampshire.


Our Council, which was founded in 1895, was first formed through the collaboration of two area Catholic Church's. The Church's, St. John the Evangelist and Sacred Heart, are now part of a combined community, on the campus of St. John School, and the now Christ the King Parish.


Over the years, the Council would encompass what was St. Peter Parish and Immaculate Heart of Mary, as well as serving the Carmelite Monastery, also in Concord.

Council Brother Knight, McGee Prints Saint Corona Prayer Card

Immediate Past Grand Knight, Chuck McGee, had the privilege of printing Saint Corona Prayer Cards.

The namesake of the prayer cards, ironically, comes during a time that the nation and beyond, is gripped by the Coronavirus (Covid-19).

St. Corona, the "patron saint of treasure hunters", has most recently been touted as the "patron saint of pandemics and plagues", throughout the internet, and scholars suggest that if the correlation continues between the coronavirus and her namesake, that she may further go forth in that manner, if the patronage sticks.
