Greetings from Wyoming State Deputy John Benedik
Welcome to the Wyoming State Council of the Knights of Columbus Web site. We are a Catholic family, fraternal
service organization with 29 local councils and more than 2,600 members spread across the 97,818 square miles of
Wyoming. The membership of our councils reflects all of the strengths and diversity of Wyoming. We have members of all
ages, occupations, and ethnic backgrounds and each member brings to the organization unique gifts and talents.
Father Michael McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus to help Catholic men remain steadfast in their
faith, promote closer ties of fraternity among them, and set up a system that would help fellow members and their families
in times of hardship. Today, over 130 years later, the Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity, and
I encourage you to peruse this Web site and review the many charitable and service programs and activities of the Wyoming
State Council. We welcome new members to share in the camaraderie of the Knights while helping us build more dynamic
parishes and communities. Vivat Jesus!
