About our Council

Council 12017 was founded on June 21,1997 largely through the efforts of the founding Grand Knight, Jim McNamara. It is named after Father James E. Waters who was then pastor of St. Mark Catholic Church and a great supporter of the Knights. The Fr. Waters Council Knights are committed to making the St. Mark Parish and our community a better place while supporting its pastor, church, school, and their families.
