About our Council
The James Cardinal Hickey Council was founded in May 2006 through the efforts of several men of the Parish of St. Brigid of Kildare,with the guidance of Fr. James Bessert, our Pastor and a 4th Degree Knight. The Council was named to honor a "son" of the Saint Brigid Parish, a man who dedicated his life to service, and who believed in the active support of religious vocations. The Cardinal especially supported the efforts of the Knights of Columbus.
The James Cardinal Hickey Council was formed to work closely with the St. Brigid Parish in Midland, of the Diocese of Saginaw to:
1. Support the Catholic vocations.
2. Support our Pastor
3. Support the Parish Community through service in various projects and activities.
Present and prospective members are expected to be active participants in our Parish and Council service.
