Council History

Prince of Peace Council #5903 was chartered on December 2, 1966. Forty-seven Catholic men were inducted as First Degree members of the Order in Our Lady of Mercy Church hall in Englishtown, NJ. The inception of our Council was originally discussed by Catholic Laymen John Dolce, Edward Hye, John Desmond, Vincent Hozeny and District Deputy James Burke, in a meeting held at Our Lady of Mercy Church with Father John C. Petri in June of 1966.

Our Council holds regular Business meetings on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month starting at 8:00PM. Meetings will be held at the John F. Carroll Columbian Club hall located at 3 LaSatta Avenue in Englishtown.

Our Council is named for The Messiah, Jesus Christ. Our members serve the Parish of Saint Thomas More which consists of Saint Thomas More Church in Manalapan, NJ, and Our Lady of Mercy Church in Englishtown, NJ.

The Pastor of the Parish of Saint Thomas More is Reverend Mark W. Crane.
