|The Knights of Peter Claver is the largest predominately African American lay Catholic organization in the United States.
The Order is named after St. Peter Claver, a Jesuit priest from Spain who ministered to African Cartegena, Colombia, South America, in the 1600s. Peter Claver is said to have converted over 300,000 slaves to Catholicism.
It is hoped that by knowing his love for his fellow man, we will have recourse to him for strength and endurance in the knowledge that God loves all his creatures and truly cares for each of them.
The mission of the Knights of Peter Claver is:
May every Knight aspire to true manhood in all its glory!
Membership: Practicing Catholic men age 18 and older.
Activities include: scholarship program; district and national conventions; fundraising for church ministries.
