Knights-of-ColumbusThe Knights of Columbus (www.kofc.org) was founded on March 29, 1882 by Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney.  Charity is the first principle of the Order. We are Catholic men of faith and men of action, along with our wives and children. Our charitable activities encompass an almost infinite variety of local, national, and international projects. From international charitable partnerships with the Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity to our own Food for Families and Coats for Kids projects and other purely local charities in our own communities, the opportunity to work together with fellow Knights and their families is virtually endless.

Hello Saint John Fisher Parish golfers.

KofC 1st GolfAttached is the flyer for the 2015 Knights of Columbus Golf Tourney to be held 5/1/15 at Blackledge. The Knights of Columbus Council of St. John Fisher Church is again hosting this event.

Last year we had 126 golfers and a great time.  This year we're looking for 144 golfers.

There is an "early bird special" rate with a 4/1/15 deadline. There are gifts, prizes, food on the course, raffles, beer and this year there will be a dinner in the clubhouse after the event.  The dinner is free for golfers.

If you would like to play and hopefully gather a foursome, that would be great.  The funds are used for St John Fisher church and other charities.
