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.


Our Council Grand Knight for 2015-2016 is Terry Zehl.







Memorial Brick walkway

 Phase One of our Memorial Brick walkway was completed on 7/13/2012 by Professional Landscaping & Masonry LLC with 59 engraved bricks being installed. Now that the Memorial walkway has been installed for all to appreciate, please consider adding you and your family to this tribute to our Brotherhood by buying a brick to be included in the Memorial. Dominick Avigliano, Professional Landscaping & Masonry, can be contacted at 732-792-0022 or 908-415-0540 if you need landscaping and/or masonry work done.

The 2013 brick promotions resulted in the installation of 31 bricks into the Memorial Garden. There remain over 100 spaces for engraved Memorial Bricks to complete our Memorial Garden. 

Member Raymond A. Proietti (Lt. Col., U.S. Army, retired) donated the flag, flag pole and memorial plaque in honor of his deceased brother-in-law Reverend John E. McDonald (Major, U.S. Army Chaplain).
