Saint Joan of Arc

History

 

The Saint Joan of Arc Council was charted in 1997 in Saint Benedicts/Saint Elizabeth's parish at the request of, then pastor Father Robert Coine and William Nickum, our first grand knight.  Instrumental in the creation of our council were District Deputy Jack Bigelow and District Warden Charles 'Buddy' George acting as the forming state representatives. 
 
Thirty Charter Members, shown below, have grown into a cohesive group of dedicated catholic men now sixty five in number (9/2006).  We have added forty three (43) knights to our rolls since 1997 and continue to grow with men dedicated to our order.  Saint Joan has the distinction of having the highest percentage of our membership attain Forth Degree Knighthood of any local council.
