Welcome to the Father C.C. Boyle Council Web Site
The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded by the Venerable Father Michael J McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882, it was named in honor of the mariner Christopher Columbus. Originally serving as a mutual benefit society to low-income immigrant Catholics, it developed into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, promoting Catholic education and actively defending Catholicism in various nations.
There are more than 1.85 million members in nearly 15,000 councils, with nearly 200 councils on college campuses. Membership is limited to practicing Catholic men aged 18 or older. Membership consists of four different degrees, each exemplifying a different principle of the Order.
Our Council of over 300 members, meets in O'Connell Hall at Saint George Parish, located at 6707 W 175th street in Tinley Park, Illinois. Our meetings are held on the first and third Thursdays of the month at 8:00 p.m. The Grand Knight for Father C.C. Boyle Council 4698, for year 2015-2016 is Tim Kavanaugh.
