The Madonna Council Knights of Columbus Council was established on May 11, 1924, in North Tonawanda, New York. Its first location was on the corner of Wheatfield Street and Payne Avenue. On March 1, 1978, it completed construction of its current building at 755 Erie Avenue, and changed its original name of North Tonawanda Council to Madonna Council #2535.
The Madonna Council is affiliated with both catholic churches located in the community, Our Lady of Czestochowa Parish and Saint Jude’s Parish.
The Council provides a wide variety of opportunities for members and their families to get together in projects and activities that are both enjoyable and that benefit both the church and the community.
Each day, the Knights of Columbus provides its members with the opportunity to discover the importance of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism to our community, the country, and the world.
