Current Officer List

    The Bishop Francis J Green Knights of Columbus Council  11855 was formed in 1996 when 34 men of the Saints Peter & Paul Parish came together to answer the call to service. These men joined together in Charity, Unity, and Fraternity to support the Parish, School, and larger Catholic Community.  Working closely with the Pastor and School Principal, the Knights are actively involved in supporting the Catholic Community and demonstrating the Principles of our Catholic Faith in action.

 

    At the suggestion of Monseigneur Van Wagner, our Council was named after Bishop Francis Joseph Green the former Pastor of Saints Peter & Paul.

 

    Francis Joseph Green (July 7, 1906—May 11, 1995) was an American prelate of the Roman Catholic Church. He served as Bishop of Tucson from 1960 to 1981.

 

    Francis Green was born in Corning, New York, but moved with his mother to Prescott, Arizona, following his father's death in 1919. He there worked in the shops of the Santa Fe Railroad. The following year he entered St. Joseph's College in Mountain View, California. He completed his theological studies at St. Patrick's Seminary in Menlo Park. He was ordained to the priesthood on May 15, 1932. He then returned to Arizona, where he later became pastor of the SS. Peter and Paul Church in Tucson in 1937. He was named both a Domestic Prelate and Vicar General of the Diocese of Tucson in 1950.[2]

 

    On May 29, 1953, Green was appointed Auxiliary Bishop of Tucson and Titular Bishop of Serra by Pope Pius XII. He received his episcopal consecration on the following September 7 from Bishop Daniel James Gercke, with Bishops James Peter Davis and Hugh Aloysius Donohoe serving as co-consecrators.[3] He was named Coadjutor Bishop of Tucson by Pope John XXIII on May 11, 1960. Upon the resignation of Bishop Daniel James Gercke, Green succeeded him as the fourth Bishop of Tucson on September 28, 1960. He attended all four sessions of the Second Vatican Council between 1962 and 1965, calling it "one of the great experiences of [his] life." He began major restoration on St. Augustine's Cathedral in 1966, completing the effort in 1968. He was instrumental in founding the Arizona Ecumenical Council, became an advocate of social justice, and provided ministries for African American, Native American, and Hispanic Catholics

 

    After reaching the mandatory retirement age of 75, Green resigned as Bishop of Tucson on July 28, 1981. He later died at age 88.
