Welcome to Knights of Columbus Council 5561

Who are the Knights?

Fr. Veger Council 5561 was founded in 1964 following the principals of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism (our core values).  Since that time, the Council has grown to over 300 members among the 23,000+ Virginia Knights serving our church and community.  Today, there are more than 2 million members of the Knights of Columbus in some 15,000 local councils located in more than a dozen countries around the world.
