The Knights of Peter Claver Council is  council of the Knights of Peter Claver, Inc., the largest historically African-American Catholic lay organization in the United States. Its purpose is to render service to God and His Holy Church, render aid and assistance to the sick and disabled, and promote social and intellectual association among our members.

The Knights of Peter Claver, Inc. Order is named for St. Peter Claver, the Spanish Priest who ministered to African slaves. Although it was founded in Mobile, Alabama, its headquarters are located in New Orleans, Louisiana. The organization consists of six divisions: Knights of Peter Claver, Knights of Peter Claver Ladies Auxiliary, Junior Knights, Junior Daughters, 4th Degree Knights and Ladies of Grace. It is governed by a Board of Directors and is under the leadership of the Supreme Knight and Supreme Lady, KPCLA.
