Lenten Fish Frys are back!

Lent is just around the corner and that means Easter is close by.  The Knights will help begin the Lenten season with a tasty Fish Fry in McCready Hall on Ash Wednesday, February 18,  and every Friday during Lent (except Good Friday), from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  Help from Brother Knights is needed to prepare, serve and clean up. Setup begins at 3:30pm and cleanup is finished by about 8:00 pm.  Bring the family.  Your children and wife will hug you for your generosity. And, back by popular demand, FISH TACOS!!!  Please join us.

Thank you all for a successful Golf Tournament!

The OLMC Knights of Columbus would like to thank all of those involved, in this year’s event, for making it such a huge success. This year’s tournament far surpassed our prior events, for helping raise funds to benefit our sponsored Seminarians (to include our new Priest, Father Scott Sperry, and Seminarian, Anthony Dang) along with other charitable activities.  A complete list of tournament sponsors is available here. Please remember them for your business needs.  Finally,  we would not be a success without the participation of our golfers.  Thank you again.
