About Our Council

Holy Crusaders Council was founded in January 23, 1986 with 36 charter members. Today it has grown to over 313 members. Our council is dedicated to the Principles or Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. Remaining true to these principles, with our Catholic Faith as a guide, is the primary goal of our council. We accomplish this through various standing committees and programs that concentrate on Church, Community, Council, Family, Youth and Culture of Life. Holy Crusaders supports Our Lady of Hope parish and various local community projects through volunteer time and financial donations. In 2011, The Holy Crusaders Council proudly celebrated the 25th anniversary of its founding.
