New Hyde Park Knights of Columbus
Council #2852

New Hyde Park
Knights of Columbus

Back in 1942 fifty-eight male residents of the New Hyde Park area felt that they wanted to get involved in religion, in charity, in a united organization, and in each other. The answer to their needs was The Knights of Columbus. Requirements, as set forth by Supreme, were met by eager men who knew what they wanted. On February 15, 1942 , New Hyde Park Council #2852 became a reality. The framed charter, bears these fifty-eight names.

New Hyde Park Council is particularly pleased with an innovative idea that one of its leaders planned and turned into one of our proudest hours. In 1984, the first annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony took place in New Hyde Park. Since that time the celebration has been expanded, through a New York State Resolution, to Councils throughout the nation and elsewhere. This conceived plan to combine the spiritual beauty of the coming of Christ with the fraternal strength of our Knights has been the most successful endeavor of this Council since the dedication of its home. This event has made this Council proud.

Our Council is also proud of those members who initiated a wake service for the deceased. Our service was later recognized as the official New York State Wake Service, which has been adopted by Councils throughout the state.

Our Council also began a Special Olympics Program, that is thriving today, and all invovled are very proud of this program. New York State and the Nassau Chapter have honored our program as one of the best in New York State.

where we live, worship, work and play.

To maximize your enjoyment and personal contributions, there are no specific requirements or amounts of time to spend within the organization. Everyone in the Columbiettes participates at whatever level of commitment that makes her comfortable.

We offer you the opportunity to give back to your community at well as your Parish.
