Welcome, to the new home of the K of C St. Joseph Council 3814 New Milford


Welcome to the unofficial launch of the new web home of the Knights of Columbus St. Joseph Council 3814 located in New Milford, NJ. As a council we felt it was necessary to adapt to the ever changing world and help better server our members, the community and our parish with a more up to date and interactive web site. This blog will give you details of our council, the events we are participating in and current news we would like to share. What we would like to accomplish by producing a blog like this, is to showyou the different facets of our council, from the individual members, to our opinions and how we grow as catholic men of faith. Our duty as catholic men of the Knights of Columbus order is to leave an identity in our community of charity, unity and fraternity. Hopefully, you can make this a regular stop and can get a deeper picture of not only what we are, but who we are in the community.
