About Our Council

The charter for Knights of Columbus Council #7239 was received on February 18, 1979, with 52 members. Our council name, Fr. James P. Heary, was taken from our first pastor of St. Vincent Ferrer Church.

The original meeting place was the St. Vincent Ferrer Church Social Hall. 12 of the charter members are now deceased. 19 of the charter members are still active. Fr. Elder was our first chaplain.

As membership grew, the council moved to a home on 13 Mile Rd. in Madison Heights. Then, in 1989, we moved to our permanent home on Dequindre Road.

Council #7239 has received the Star Council Award several times, along with the Columbian and Fr. McGivney Awards.

The council's regular meeting is the first Monday of each month.
