About Our Council
St. John Neumann/Good Shepherd Council # 12571 was founded in 1999 through the efforts of Randy Dolce. It is named after the parish St. John Neumann/Good Shepherd. The St. John Neumann Council # 12571 works with the St. John Neumann & Good Shepherd Parish in Lords Valley, Pa., providing funds for various projects, members being active participants in their community/parish. etc.

  Some of the projects that the St. John Neumann/Good Shepherd Council are involved in is the TROOPS PROGRAM, which was started in September 2004 with donations from the St. John Neumann/Good Shepard Council and the Marine Corps League Detachment #909. Jars were placed at various locations in Lords Valley and with these donations the program was started. A list of items that the troops needed was published and the community was appealed to for their help. The Hemlock Farms Fire Company was good enough to give us space to store our donations until shipped overseas.

During the last several years rhe council has sent 1774 packages to the men and women who are defending our country. If you have anyone in Iraq or Afganistan please get us his or her APO# and we will be glad to send them a package or two.

Another Project is Food for Families and Friends Program, which provides a nutritous home cooked meal on the first Sunday of every month for families and individuals experiencing financial difficulties or in need of socialization.

And a third project is "Knights Reaching Out A Helping Hand" is a program designed to help Brother Knights and their immediate family. The services provided are phone contacts, companionship, transportation services and minor home tasks.
