Welcome to the web site for the Knights of Columbus St John Paul II of the Poconos, Council #4159. This new council was formed in 2016 by the merger of two existing councils necessitated by the wider consolidation of Catholic Parishes. Thus the former Saint Bernadette's Council #12447 and Pocono Mountain Council #4159 have combined to form one new council, St John Paul II of the Poconos, Council #4159. It is hoped that this merger will attract new members, new ideas, and a new energy to live our Catholic Christian lives here in the Poconos of Northeastern Pennysylvania.
Our Council is hosting its 2nd annual Golf Tournament at Buck Hill Falls Golf Club on May 20, 2018. Come play as a single (we will pair you up), arrange your own foursome, or just come for the after golf feast. Local businesses are encouraged to gain vivibility for you organization by sponsoring a hole. More information and a sign up sheet can be found HERE.
Our Council will once again partner with the VFW Hall to conduct a Nite at the Races and Bonnett Contest. Good food and lots of fun... again! This year's big event will be conducted in conjunction with the Belmont Stakes, the third leg of the Triple Crown, on June 9, 2018. Sponsor a race, buy and name your own horse, come to the races and wager and dine. This is always a fun event.
