Business Meetings:
Are held once a month on the 1st Tuesday at 7:00 pm in the shed at St. Patrick Church of Merna.
Meetings are open to all Knights in good standing who can present their current membership card.

A typical Council meeting will last approximately 90 minutes but may vary depending upon the time of year and amount of business to be conducted. For more information about the contents of a regular meeting, please refer to the outline of a meeting as established in our By-Laws.

While council meeting attendance is voluntary, the active attendance of our membership is a vital component to the continuation of our Council. By simply attending you will learn what's happening at Fr. Joseph Boylan, Jr. Council, come to understand how the Council works, meet new people, and discover ways that you can assist in the Council. Our Council Officers volunteer a tremendous amount of their time and energy. Meeting attendance is the best way you can show your appreciation for their efforts.

Are held once a month prior to the business meeting at 6:30pm in the shed at St. Patrick Church of Merna. During the year the council will conduct saying the rosary on the 8th day of each month for 8 hours. You can click on the council's website to sign up.
