In Service to One, In Service To All

Welcome to the St. Matthew Council 10852

Becoming Better Catholic Men, Husbands & Fathers

St. Matthew Council 10852 was established on April 1, 1992, by the Supreme Council and under the sponsorship of St. Vincent de Paul Council 9560. There were 74 charter members of the council and they elected James Nass as the council’s first Grand Knight.

The vision and leadership of the Council’s Grand Knights have directed the membership to accomplish many great things. Throughout the Council’s history its membership steadily increased and now stands at more than 460 Knights. Over the years the activities of our council clearly manifest the primary principle of the Knights of Columbus: In Service To One, In Service To All.

The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded by Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882, it was named in honor of the explorer Christopher Columbus.
