Welcome to the Western States District official website.  The Western States District is comprised of six (6) states - Arizona, California, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington.  We are part of a fraternal organization known as the Knights of Peter Claver, Incorporated.  We are Roman Catholic men, women, boys and girls dedicated to service to God, our Church and our communities.

The Knights of Peter Claver are named for Fr. Peter Claver, a 17th Century Spanish Jesuit priest, later named a saint, who ministered to slaves in Columbia and pushed for the abolition of slavery. 

We have divisions of men, women and children.  The men are known as Knights who belong to Councils.  The women are known as Ladies whose unit are called Courts.  The boys and girls, ranging from ages 7 to 18 are known as Juniors.  The boys are Junior Knights belonging to Junior Branches and the girls are Junior Daughters belonging to Junior Courts.

Our membership is open to any individual who is a practicing Catholic and who have made their First Communion.  To learn more about the Knights of Peter Claver Inc. and service in the Western States District.  Please complete the contact form on this site.
