About Our Council 
The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal organization.  Our local Westfield, NJ council, Council 1711, is named the "Msgr. Henry J. Watterson Council".

Msgr. Henry J. Watterson Council was founded in 1912. It is named after the founding Pastor of Holy Trinity Church in Westfield, who was to serve prominently as the Council’s Chaplain at the time that the original Council Hall was built.
The Msgr. Henry J. Watterson Council works closely with the Catholic Parishes in Westfield and Mountainside (St. Helen’s, Holy Trinity and Our Lady of Lourdes), raising and providing funds for various projects.

Strong advocates of Pro-Life causes, the Westfield Knights organize a number of events to benefit crisis pregnancy centers throughout the state.

Also, the annual spring fundraiser to benefit the developmentally disabled has made its membership quite recognizable to the community in their yellow and red aprons.

The annual Christmas present drive for the benefit of children at the Union County Day Treatment Center brings smiles to many of the infirmed and underprivileged in the area

The Council also actively supports the Westfield Food Pantry in its efforts to bring food to the most needy.  

Always supportive of religious orders, activities to promote the priestly and religious vocations are regularly undertaken as well.

The Council also sponsors and organizes an annual Invitiational Baseball Tournament during Memorial Day weekend every year, and blood drives throughout the year.
