Brief History of Council 10863

At the local level, councils function as a strong right arm for priests by serving families, parishes, and communities. St. Brigid Of Kildare Council #10863 was founded in 1992 with the same purpose. The council has over 225 members, and is one of the largest councils in the state. Our council has won many awards over the years, including Star Council several times and placing in the top 10 councils in Ohio four times, including 2 first places. Since our Council's founding, many generous men have stepped up to serve as Grand Knight. Many of those Past Grand Knights are still active in the council. Our council can also boast of a very dynamic age mix in our membership: we have members in their 20's all the way into their 70's. Our meetings are well attended, with 40 or more Knights taking part at our monthly business meetings. The council also provides many opportunities for our membership to take part in fraternal outings as well as charitable activities for the benefit of our parish and community.
