History of Council 6964

Council 6964 Original Charter

In mid 1977, a group of men from the Hoffman – Schaumburg area asked Father William Shields, Pastor of St. Hubert Church to help start a new Knights of Columbus council to perform works of charity in their neighborhoods. Today, our council represents the parish of St. Hubert and St. Matthew. 


Charity remains as our main principle and our mission. We fulfill these through programs of service and fund raising to support Catholic evangelization, civic causes and aid to those in need.


Our council was founded by SK Dick AmRhein, our first Grand Knight, pictured on the right.  Check out the original application above showing our council's first roster.
