About Our Council
Prince Georges Council No. 2809 was instituted (June 18, 1939) culminating the efforts of a band of forward looking Catholic gentlemen from Saint James in Mount Rainier, Saint Jerome's in Hyattsville and Holy Redeemer in College Park. These men visualized the eventual growth of population in Prince Georges County and saw the need for a Council in this part of the County. The first degree was held for a class of sixty men at St. Martin's School in Gaithersburg on the institution date. The first Grand Knight elected was Caesar L. Aiello and the membership grew in the first year to 184 members. The formal presentation of our Charter was made on February 24, 1941, by Maryland State Deputy Loeffier. We were, at that time, part of the 9th District, Maryland State Council along with three other Councils in Montgomery County.
