A mass service at the Carmel Mission for the Knights of Columbus on August 30, 1959.  The Monterey Council #1465 of The Knights of Columbus was formed on February 6, 1910 and is among the oldest councils in California. Its members come from all walks of life, ages, ethnicities, political affiliations and professions, but all are practicing Catholic men of strong moral character. Members are parishioners of San Carlos Cathedral in Monterey, St. Angela Merici Church in Pacific Grove, St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel at the Naval Post Graduate School in Monterey and other local Catholic parishes of the Monterey Diocese.
