Happy Founders Day!

The Knights of Peter Claver was founded in Mobile Alabama on November 7, 1909 by four Josephite priests and three lay men to create a space for people of color to serve the Church and their communities with dignity and pride. Since then, we have grown into an international Catholic service organization fighting for a fair and just society for all. We are currently active in 36 states and South America with over 17,000 members comprised of the Knights and Ladies divisions along with our Junior division for boys and girls.
This year at the 2018 National Convention in Anaheim, California we reaffirmed our commitment to social justice by launching new initiatives in domestic violence, racism, human trafficking, Black Lives Matter, and criminal justice. Moving forward, our goal is to educate and create more programs that support efforts within the social justice arena. We will achieve our goals faster by partnering with other organizations and activating our membership to answer the worldwide needs of social justice.
To our Claver Family, we are excited about another year with you! Thank you for your dedication to our Noble Order.
Yours in Claverism,
James K. Ellis, 17th Supreme Knight
Micaela Leblanc, 14th Supreme Lady
