Recently its been mentioned to the selection committee to consider presenting a certificate to a Non-Knight Parish Family with hopes that if their work is recognized by us, the Family may consider joining our Order.

Operation Wheelchair

Council: 136 - ROCKLAND

Project Description:

11 People from our parish, including 6 Knights, traveled to Togus hospital to assist/accompany veterans in celebrating Mass. We met the veteran’s at their rooms, wheeled them to Mass, celebrated Mass with them and brought them back to their rooms. This allowed the men to attend Mass during Advent and gave them an opportunity for socialization during the Christmas season. Additionally, it was an example to the children who accompanied us of our veteran’s desire to attend Mass, despite how hard it is for them to be mobile.




First Annual Progressive Card Game Evening for Parish. 15791

01/14/2019


Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH

Project Description:

Eight council brothers supported and participated in our First Annual Progressive Card Game Evening for the Parish. The location for this event was at Holy Martyr’s Church following the 4 PM Mass on Saturday January 12, 2019. This years event ran from 5 PM to 8:30 PM. Some 25 parishioners and brother knights enjoyed a nice evening of fun and fellowship. As part of the evening refreshments were served. It was mentioned by some in attendance as to when we might be having our next event. At a recent Council Officers Meeting several new idea’s were brought to the table on how our council could get more involved with the parishioners of our Parish, and also raise funds for our council treasury. This event was not a large money making event, but the money will help us in putting on our next event. We must as a council stride to come up with more events that will help us to become more visible as a council, and families of this Parish. At our next Council Officers Meeting we will be looking to plan our next “Parish Progressive Card Game Evening”. Without our Priests, Council Members , their Families, and the Parish Office Staff support, none of this would have been made possible.
