2021-2022 Knights of Columbus Council 10668 Calendar of Events


To All Members of St. Francis by the Sea Parish, Friends, and Visitors:

The Knights of Columbus - Thomas D. Reilly, Sr - Council 10668 would like to thank each and every one of you who donated very generously to our Campaign to raise funds for the KofC Sponsored Ukraine Solidarity Fund this past weekend on the Church Plaza. As a result of your kind generosity, we were able to raise $13,220 for this very important campaign to help the people of Ukraine. I addition, our local KofC Council made a $1,000 donation when the call went out in early March. Total amount donated, $14,220. 

One Hundred Percent (100%) of these funds will go directly to KofC Charities, Inc in New Haven, CT. They will be matched by KofC Supreme HQ ($13,220) and 100% of the total amount ($26,440) will be transferred directly to the KofC Country Councils in Poland and Ukraine. Once in Poland and Ukraine, the KofC Country funding will be distributed by Brother Knights in the local KofC Councils and parishes that are supporting and caring for the Immigrants and Displaced Persons from the War in Ukraine. Throughout the world, as of March 22, $5.8 million has been raised by the Knights of Columbus Councils.

We also like to thank the members of the Parish that sent their donations directly to the KofC Chanities Inc.- Ukraine Solidarity Fund in New Haven, CT based upon an initial request that the KofC Council sent out in early March. Your contributions will only add to the amount noted above and increase the support and care that the KofC Councils in Poland and Ukraine will be able to provide. Thank you for your immediate and rapid response to our request.

On behalf of the Knights of Columbus Charities, Inc and the people of Poland and Ukraine, thank you for your very generous donations this past weekend and for having a direct and positive impact upon the caring for the needy people in Poland and Ukraine - Leave No Neighbor Behind!

 Please pray for the people in Poland and Ukraine.

God Bless!

Inspired by the charity project offered by parishioner, Jack Gigante, a high school sophomore at John Paul II, our Knights have joined their efforts to collect unused suitcases and tote bags for foster children throughout the state.  Jack's donations were accepted in April and a new collection date for the K of C is being planned for June.  Watch here for more details.  Visit the SC Suitcase Project webpage for more information.
