Shamokin Council #458


New Members, Current Members and Officers

We believe through charity you will grow family values and community values and building a relationship with God. If you or someone you know would like to get involved we are open to the public every Thursday evening serving the best Wings in the Area.


Participants in our projects are expected to be respectful at all times

We build character and brotherhood through teamwork and commitment. There are dozens of volunteers involved with community service projects and raising money to meet the financial needs. Success has been so great that we are looking forward to taking on even more community projects that help those in need. Over the past several years the Knights of Columbus Council 458 has provided thanksgiving meals to families, toys for Christmas, and other community projects


We come from many places, backgrounds, and different stages in our lives, but our charity work involves a virtually boundless variety of projects that we believe everyone can find an interest or perhaps a hobby which they can relate. We are here to build a bridge back to what matters for our families, our members, and our community. The Knights of Columbus council 458 has always been involved with projects that support and help our churches and the public through service projects, fund raising, food for the needy, coats for kids and countless others.

Knights of Columbus - Council 458 is a fraternal society, founded in 1940. Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practicing Catholics and are in good standing in the Church.

Did you recently graduate? If so, we would like to invite you to join our organization and become part of a custom-built community that is strengthened by the bonds of brotherhood.

Sharing from the heart

Sharing from the heart

If today was your last day on earth, could you look in the mirror and feel your life has been truly fulfilled. There is only one thing certain in life and that is death. There is not a person among you who wants to die, not even those who want to go to heaven want to die to get there. Your time is precious so you need to use it well. Somehow deep inside you already know that. You appreciate the value of good works and the impact it has on family and community, but it takes you to step forward and get involved. It is our deepest belief that you will, don’t let us down.

OUR FOUNDING 1882 The Knights of Columbus is founded by Father Michael J. McGivney on Feb. 6, 1882 with a mission of charity.



The history of Shamokin Council #458 dates back to October 28, 1899, the date of its founding. Forty three members elected John Meenahan as the first grand knight. The council used the halls of St. Edward's Church and the club rooms of affiliated lodges for assemblies.In four years the Shamokin Knights built a four-story building in the heart of the city's business district on Independence Street, catching the hearts and imagination of Catholic men in the area. Economic pressure forced the sale of the building which eventually became occupied by the Jones Hardware Company. The K of C emblem still can be seen on the top face of the Jones building.
