About Our Council

The IHM Council was founded on January 15, 1989 through the efforts of the first Grand Knight Dr. Antonio "Tony" Dela Paz DDS and then IHM Pastor Father Michael Wilson (now Monsignor Wilson).  Since the days of the second Grand Knight Dennis DeCarlo and the 39 other member Knights, the Council has grown to over 170 members with several Star Council Awards.

As the Council name implies, Council 9968 works closely with the Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Lexington Park, Maryland, providing funds for various projects and supporting all activities of the Parish.
