ST. VIATEUR'S COUNCIL, No. 745

CHARTERED APRIL 5, 1903


St. Viateur's Council, No. 745, was chartered on April 5, 1903, in Kankakee, IL. At the time of the institution, Thomas F. Donovan was elected as Grand Knight, A.E. Smith, Deputy Grand Knight, and Rev. T.J. Whalen as Chaplain.

We are proud Catholic gentlemen who strive to serve the parishes of St. Patrick, St. John Paul II, and the St. Rose of Lima Chapel.

Our Council has a strong group of motivated Knights from all ages and walks of life, with our current membership standing at 660 strong and growing. Our council’s main goals are:

  • to rally the Catholic men in our community to a common and noble cause

  • to assist and defend our church, to serve our community

  • to encourage growth in faith and prayer in ourselves, our friends and families

  • to meet like-minded men that share our same values and beliefs, with Christ at the center of our lives.


We are always looking for new members, and welcome men 18 years of age or older, who are practicing Catholic men of the Parishes & Chapel we serve and surrounding community to join our ranks. Our closed general meetings are held at the CMA - Columbia Memorial Association Building in the Council room on the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 PM. There is usually a social following our meetings, at the Casey's Club, which is open to all prospective members. To find out more information about the Knights of Columbus, St. Viateur's Council, No. 745, or to apply for membership, feel free to contact our Deputy Grand Knight, Matt Boyd (k3kofc745@gmail.com)
