About Our Council

Council  #112 traces its origins back to March 17, 1895 when a group of thirty-nine Catholic men from both St. John the Evangelist and Sacred Heart parishes were granted a charter by the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council. Dennis Donovan served for two years as the first Grand Knight. The Council works closely in support of the four Church's of Concord: Immaculate Heart of Mary on Loudon Road, as well as St. John the Evangelist, St. Peter's and Sacred Heart, the last three all part of the newly formed Christ The King Parish - as well as the Carmelite Monastery on Pleasant Street. Council 112 provides funds for various projects such as memorials, CCD programs, scholarships for local students, tournaments, communion breakfasts, Special Olympics, cancer research, Operation Santa Claus, and visiting hospital patients. Members are active participants in their respective parishes as organists, cantors, lectors, ushers, teachers, and Eucharistic Ministers.

The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic lay organization, with more than 1.7 million members in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean and the Philippines and Poland. Last year, the Knights donated more than $139 million and over 64 million hours of volunteer time to charity.

Free Room and Board Initiative:

Warner, NH:The College of Saint Mary Magdalen is pleased to announce that it will be extending its Free Room and Board Initiative to any freshman or transfer student who enrolls in 2016.


The College of Saint Mary Magdalen initially launched this initiative in the spring of 2014 with the goal of making a faithful Catholic education more affordable to prospective students.


"The success of the Free Room and Board Initiative and the quality of the students who have enrolled this year as a result has prompted the College to extend the initiative for another recruiting cycle," said Dr. George A. Harne, President of the College of Saint Mary Magdalen.  

 

Free Room and Board will be guaranteed to any student who participates until they graduate or leave the College.  

 

Over the past 25 years the cost of tuition in the United States has sky-rocketed and through the Free Room and Board Initiative the College of Saint Mary Magdalen hopes to make a true liberal arts education accessible to students who may not have been otherwise able to afford it.

 

The reduction in cost represents an $8,000 discount worth more than $25,000 over four years.  The College has a rolling admission process and will be actively accepting students throughout the school year. 

 

For information on how to apply, please contact the admissions office at 603.456.2656 or  [email protected]
