Knights of Columbus (KOC)
Crusader Council No. 2706 of the Knights of Columbus was born on March 26, 1929, and included almost 140 charter members. It was the very first council in the order organized on a Jesuit college or university campus.
Since its beginnings, Crusader Council has been very active in the Worcester area. In recent years, it has participated in the Matthew 25 Program, done volunteer work at Sacred Heart Church, run food drives, distributed turkeys to the needy at Thanksgiving, and taken candy to children in local hospitals. Also, the Council supports a variety of charities at home and abroad, including pro-life programs and the Catholic media ministry.
