Chapter Announcements


Welcome to the Ocean County Chapter of the Knights of Columbus.  With 18 member Councils throughout the County, we represent over 4,000 brother Knights and their families.

Our Chapter meets at 8:00pm on the 2nd Monday of each month, we have a “traveling gavel” to enable the Chapter officers and the representatives from each Council to visit the other Councils throughout the County.

The Chapter serves as a clearing house for Councils to discuss their various programs; to offer support to member Councils; to coordinate various Degrees and events; and to serve as a forum for member Councils to discuss their particular needs.

The Councils in the Ocean County Chapter host a very diverse array of Programs throughout the year. Please check the Calendar area to see what events are upcoming.
