In 1926 the Ladies Auxiliary Division of the Knights of Peter Claver was established as a Catholic lay organization for women with the common goals of faith, unity, and Christian charity. The objectives of the organization stem from the charitable work of St. Peter Claver (1580-1654), a priest who labored unceasingly for the salvation of African slaves and the abolition of the slave trade. The members render service to God, Church, community, and worthwhile charitable causes; promote social justice; support education and youth; and promote friendship and unity among their members.
