About Us

The mission of our Subordinate Council of the Knights of Peter Claver, Inc., is to assist the Hierarchy in the Diocese of Birmingham, in Alabama, and the clergy of St. Joseph Catholic Church - Huntsville, in the Apostolic work to which we have dedicated our lives.

We also support this mission through giving edification by good example in deportment, in word, and in deed, especially to the youth who emulate these virtuous deeds.

Rendering mutual aid and assistance to our sick and disabled members is also our mission. Promoting such social and intellectual association among our members, as shall be desired and proper, is another high priority within our mission.

More specifically, our local Council participates collectively in various parish and community activities; promotes civic improvements; encourages lay apostolic and Catholic action; makes contributions to worthwhile causes; awards scholarships; fosters recreational assemblies; and develops youth.

Our Council is a member council of the Huntsville Area of Zone 4 of the Gulf Coast District of the Knights of Peter Claver. Our Council is an active constituent of the Gulf Coast District Conference which is comprised all councils in the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and South Carolina.

We meet monthly, on the 2nd Sunday of each month. If you're Catholic, and you are interested in joining our membership, contact us via email, phone, or snail mail.
