Meridian Council 802 was the first council in the state of Mississippi. It was founded in 1903. The membership takes great pride in the support it gives to the church and school in the Catholic Community of Meridian, the Catholic Church in Tucker which serves the Choctaw Community of Philadelphia, Mississippi, and the whole community of Meridian, MS
As Knights, our duty is always to promote unity within the Church. We must increase our efforts to help every Catholic see more clearly that being Catholic means accepting the Church in its entirety, especially in respecting the lives of all. Building up the culture of life is the task of every Catholic.
