Welcome to the web site for the Knights of Columbus St John Paul II of the Poconos, Council #4159. This new council was formed in 2016 by the merger of two existing councils necessitated by the wider consolidation of Catholic Parishes. Thus the former Saint Bernadette's Council #12447 and Pocono Mountain Council #4159 have combined to form one new council, St John Paul II of the Poconos, Council #4159. It is hoped that this merger will attract new members, new ideas, and a new energy to live our Catholic Christian lives here in the Poconos of Northeastern Pennysylvania.
Our annual Council Picnic is set for Sept 17th at 2:00 pm at the Roof. Ladies Guild and our families are all welcome. Last names A-M bring a side dish, N-Z bring a desert.
The prizes are many and huge. We are selling wining tickets after Sunday Masses. Buy quick before the winners are sold!
The football season is upon us. Our annual Football Sweeps fundraiser is has begun. Buy and sell winning sweepstakes tickets for fun throughout the season.
Sept 23 – All our Acolytes will be honored by the Knights with Pizza, Ice Cream and fun after the 4 pm Mass on Saturday September 23rd
We will induct our recently elected 2017-2018 officers on Sept 26 in the Parish Chapel with a social at the Forks afterwards. Wives and family are invited.
On the second Sunday of every month our Council sponsors an MHT Parish Social after Mass, with coffee, donuts and bagels. Helpers are needed before and after Mass for setup and cleanup.
