 REQUEST FOR PROGRAM DIRECTORS 

Brothers all,

Past Grand Knights Jerry Cole and John Perragine have volunteered to identify and interview members in good standing in our Council who wish to be considered for Program Director positions for the upcoming 2015-2016 fraternal year. We will be working as a team with current officers Guy Girgenti, Chancellor and Recruitment Director, and Terry Zehl, Deputy Grand Knight, in the selection process. 

If you are interested in hearing more about the opportunity to join the 2015-2016 Council 5903 team, please contact  Jerry Cole at 732-642-6694 cole_gr@yahoo.com or John Perragine at 732-742-4772 jfp2514@yahoo.com. All candidates will be made completely aware of what the expectations for the positions are.

All current Program Directors who wish to retain their positions for 2015-2016 are requested to contact one of the above  PGKs for further discussions.

Please consider giving a bit of your time and effort in implementing the virtues of Charity, Fraternity, Unity and Patriotism at your Council as a Program Director.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Fraternally yours,
Jerry Cole PGK and John Perragine PGK

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.
