Good news for St. John's Council!
Effective April 27th, Archbishop Myers appointed the Rev. Stephen Carey as the Chaplain of St. John's Council. He also expressed his hope that God would continue to bless Fr. Carey and Council #1345. The next time you see Father Carey, please welcome him warmly as the new Chaplain of our Council.

National Organ Donor Program starts in NJ at St. John's Council!
Just two months before his death, Bergenfield resident Danny Glover told his mother that if he were to die, he wanted his organs to be donated to help others. Danny was involved in a motor vehicle accident in January of 2012. As a result, he sustained severe brain trauma and passed away nine days later.

Danny's mother Karyn has engaged herself in spreading the word - how her son’s life lives on in others through the donation of his organs. There is great need for organ and tissue donation, and most people don’t realize how valuable giving the gift of life can be.

After months of travel, Karyn Glover, along with her husband Ray, with Phil Fredericks PGK and Greg Ryan, have spoken before the majority of Federation and Chapter groups in the state of New Jersey. Their message - urging members and their families and friends to register to be organ donors. With God's help, we will take this program's message to every state in the nation, and register as many Brother Knights and their families as we can.

While we work on expanding information available here, you can contact:

Phil Fredericks at 201-321-6695 or by email at

Greg Ryan at 201-919-2535 or by email at
