The Hudson Valley Chapter continues to be a strong union of councils, allowing some of the smaller councils to participate in charitable programs they would not on their own be able to conduct as individual councils due to various resource constraints.
The mission of the HV Chapter is to promote Unity through collaboration by providing its member councils the opportunities to unite together and support Chapter sponsored fraternal and charitable service programs and activities.
Examples of such service programs are: the Annual Charity Drive, Vocations support through RSVP, “Keep Christ in Christmas” campaigns, Special Olympics, and the Leadership Training and Development seminars for members.
Hudson Valley Chapter Motto
Service thru Unity
The Hudson Valley Chapter Knights of Columbus consists of more than 7000 Knights in over 50 councils, serving six New York counties in the Mid-Hudson Valley and the Village of Cold Spring in Putnam County, as well as twenty-one Assemblies of the 2nd NY District, six Columbiette lady’s auxiliaries, the United States Military Academy Msgr. O’Keefe #8250 College Council at West Point, and several Squire Circles.
We are proud of our Knights of Columbus heritage that includes Fourteen (14) Councils celebrating 100 plus years and home to four (4) Past State Deputies, a sitting State Secretary, a Former State Warden and a Former Supreme Treasurer and Director.
We are fortunate that many of our past leaders continue to be committed to the Hudson Valley Chapter.
Our Advisory Board consists of our elected officers, and seven past Chapter Chairmen.
We are also fortunate to have a strong level of cooperation with the Hudson Valley Conference and Board of District Deputies, Often compared to as a tripod.
This strong cooperation, between the three organizations, energizes the Hudson Valley Chapter to continue to grow and remain a strong arm and presence of the Knights of Columbus in the Hudson Valley.
