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 Monday, December 12th we will take over the Forks at Buckhill Restaraunt for our annual Christmas Party and Awards Banquet. The Forks will only be open for us. Good friends, good stories, and great food. Who will receive our coveted "Knight of the Year" award? So, buy your wife a new dress and come out and have fun and welcome in the Christmas season. Contact Brick Quinn now to make sure they have food for you!
