HISTORY

Council 551

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. Originally serving as a mutual benefit society to working-class and immigrant Catholics in the United States, it developed into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, including war and disaster relief, actively defending Catholicism in various nations, and promoting Catholic education.


Altoona Council 551 was formally instituted on Sunday, February 17, 1901. We moved into our current building in September 1926.

Council 551 holds regular monthly meetings the 1st Thursday of every month.
