WHAT WE DO!

Our Lady's Knights of Columbus Council #14710 sponsors events throughout the year that benefit the families of our parish and community.  A few of these events include pasta dinners, Christmas wreath sales, Christmas ornament sales, blood drives and fundraisers for intellectually disadvantaged children.  We also add general support for parish activities.

So much is done behind the scenes and we encourage any men over the age of 18 to come see what we are all about.  You can talk to any Knight after any weekend Mass.

A few of our charitable donations this past year includes:

LOCAL EFFORTS:  $1,500 was given in scholarships to Our Lady's Academy; $500 was given to Bristol Lodge of Waltham (Middlesex Human Service Agency)

PRO-LIFE EFFORTS:  $1,000 was given to Project Rachel, a confidential ministy of hope and healing for post abortion women and men, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Boston.

COATS FOR KIDS:  Through fundraising, we purchase high quality boys and girls winter coats for families in need.  Coats are distributed to agencies, school, St. Vincent dePaul as well as individuals in need.  Due tothe Knights' national organization, we are able to purchase high quality coats at a very reasonable cost.

As the year progresses, we will keep you abreast of other charitable efforts prepared to support our parish, city and the wider community.
