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.
On the second Sunday of every month our Council sponsors an MHT Parish Social after Mass, with coffee, donuts and bagels. Helpers are needed before and after Mass for setup and cleanup.
Saturday November 19th (note date change) our Council will team up with VFW to host a fun NITE AT THE RACES event. Own your own horse, win the famous bonnett contest, bet on a winner. Click HERE for the flyer with more information.
Each year as winter approaches we conduct a coat drive. We collect lightly used winter coats and jackets, have them cleaned and distribute them to individuals and organizations that help the needy. This year our Collect-A-Coat drive begins on October 15th and ends on November 19th.
