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 annual Council Christmas Party and Awards Banquet was held on Thursday, December 14th at the Fork's Restaurant. Bill Musa received the coveted Knight of the Year Award. To see the festivities and the awards click HERE.

The Knights have been requested to conduct a Nite at the Races during the annual Chili Cookoff. We'll call it the Chili Races! Plan to attend and help out on Saturday March 3rd. More races this year! More horses. More fun!
In addition to the Chili Races, our Council will once again partner with the VFW Hall on the first Saturday in May to conduct the now famous Kentucky Derby Nite at the Races and Bonnett Contest. Good food and lots of fun... again!
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.
