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.
