Knights of Columbus

The local West Orange Council #5519 was chartered in the early 1960’s, and provides for the needs of both Catholic churches in West Orange (St. Joseph and Our Lady of Lourdes), as well as our community and local families. Many events are held throughout the year such as Fish and Chip dinners, Spaghetti dinners, Pancakes breakfasts and Casino Bus rides, to name a few. All proceeds are used for the charitable efforts we support. Membership in the Knights requires one to be a practicing Catholic male, in Communion with the Holy See, who is a least 18 years of age at the time induction.
