Council Announcements

Thank you to all of our parishioners and guest who bought pumpkins at the Knight of Columbus Pumpkin Patch at the Family Fun Days for the St. Thomas Catholic School. Your donations helped the the Knights to collect $1184.00 that will go to the Intellectual Disability Charities. The Knights have been instrumental in helping people with Intellectual Disability's since 1960 when they helped start the Special Olympics. The Knights have been and continue to be active in helping those with Intellectual Disability's.
We would also like to thank our St. Thomas Brother Knights who volunteered their time to help set-up, run and clean up the pumpkin patch. Without your help this event would not have been successful.
