Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is an international fraternal and service organization for Catholic men.

The Msgr. James H. Willett Council # 7847 was founded in 1981, named after Monsignor James Willett, who was one of the early Pastors of Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Hopkinsville. The Msgr. Willett Council  works closely with  Sts. Peter & Paul Parish, providing funds and a tremendous amount of volunteer manpower for various projects.
