Our annual spaghetti dinner and raffle benefiting our sponsored seminarians formerly to be held on March 15 has been postponed for the time being as per diocesan guidelines on Covid-19 prevention.
Please practice local health recommendations, and stay tuned for an update and join us on the rescheduled date to make our big event of the year remain a continued success.
In the meantime, you can get to know our seminarians here.
Longtime member of the council and former parishioner Joseph Anthony Barreca was laid to rest this afternoon, December 6, at Gethsemane in Federal Way. A noon memorial service followed at St. Francis of Assisi celebrated by Father Dick. He joined the Knights of Columbus in 1953.
Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon him. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
On November 12, several members of our council went to Navos Lake Burien for the second year in a row with Coats for Kids donations of new warm coats for the Winter season. We unloaded 4 cases, or 48 coats. A few days later, another 4 cases arrived from Supreme and were dropped off, bringing the total to 96 coats for the year. That’s a value of $1,760.
We were happy to learn that the coats last year were popular and went quickly to families in need.
Thank you Erika and Navos staff!
