On September 18 district Deputy Art Troccoli presented THE COLUMBIAN AWARD to Past Grand Knight Dr. Tom Connors for our accomplishments in the 2018-2019 year. Congratulations Dr. Tom for a job well done. We thank you for your leadership and guidence as Grand Knight these past 2 years.
We have had a busy start to the Fraternal year. On June 26th we had a Holy Hour for vocations followed by a barbeque for the seminarians of the Diocese of Metuchen. We donated 684 pairs of used eyeglasses to New Eyes for the Needy in July. On August 28 we had a First Degree at our home in Dunellen and welcomed 3 new members. On the last weekend of September and the first weekend of October we raised over $4,700 for individuals with special needs. This is in addition to raising over $1,000 by distributing Right to Life Roses in June. You can find details on some of these projects by clicking the News and Announcements tab.

WHY JOIN THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS?
Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie, it is being involved with your community. It is supporting your local Catholic Church while enhancing your own faith. It is about protecting and enhancing your family life.
