  • Announcements

  • The Knights of Columbus Council St. Patrick’s Day Dinner Dance has been CANCELLED

  • After serious consideration, we have decided to cancel our Saint Patrick’s Dinner Dance event for this weekend, with hopes of rescheduling a similar social event later in the spring. While this may seem like an over abundance of caution to some, as this situation has developed we can’t ignore the continuing list of organizations and groups that are making the same determination, including our town government, many universities, businesses, and most notably, our own Archdiocese and the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council.

    For those who have purchases tickets, if you paid by check, no checks have yet been cashed and your check will be VOID’ed and returned to you at the address on the check. If you paid by cash please send your mailing address to kofc5780@gmail.com and we will mail you a refund by check.

    Thank you for your understanding, and please continue to pray for those effected by this virus, including patients, caregivers, and their families.
