Our Mission

The Sacred Heart Manoa Council of the Knights of Columbus is a fraternal Organization of Catholic men dedicated to the Church. Through work of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism, we vow to fortify our families, support the Sacred Heart Parish and enhance the Havertown 

Our History

As told by our Charter Grand Knight, Louis Valenti:   
In summary, I went to my former pastor's funeral, Father Charles Valentine, in February 2013. The Knights of Columbus did such a great job at his wake, funeral and burial, that I felt proud to be a Knight myself and called to become more involved.  I realized that my parish Sacred Heart Manoa did not have a council and began looking into starting one. Initially, there were only about 10 family/friends interested, so I contacted Albert Borzillo and Joseph Monte, long time Knights and members of my Assembly. They helped me reach out to Kevin Horan, Field Agent for Knights of Columbus and Father Henry McKee, Pastor at Sacred Heart Manoa Parish.  They, in turn, put me in touch with Francis Waldron, a parishioner at Sacred Heart and District Deputy. With the approval of Father McKee, Francis Waldron and I organized recruitment drives which yielded the thirty men necessary to start a new council. We held our first exemplification of the 1st degree on October 17th, 2013 with the assistance of  Francis O’Hara, Membership Retention Chairman, Michael Kish, New Council Development and Francis Devine, Past Grand Knight and Former District Deputy. I pray that this this council will always remain and grow as "force for good" in the Parish of Sacred Heart and our community of Manoa.
