About Our Council
In 1882, parish priest Father Michael J. McGivney gathered a group of men to comfort the disabled, widows and orphans in New Haven, Connecticut. Thus began the Knight of Columbus!
This Tigard Council was started in 1953 by a group of men to, likewise, address the needs of the community in the Tigard and surrounding areas. That group included Paul Herberholz, Florian Peters, Tom Riverman and Kenneth Scheckla.
