On August 2, 2019 Knights of Columbus Council 2544 worked with Rev. Father Paul DaSilva, Pastor of Our Lady Of Fatima Church in Piscataway, on a special event for the Seminarians of the Diocese of Metuchen. The afternoon started with a Holy Hour for Vocations at Our Lady Of Fatima Church from 5PM to 6PM. This was attended by 13 seminarians along with some parishioners. After the Holy Hour, seminarians, priests, and guests went to the rectory lawn to enjoy a barbecue dinner purchased, prepared, and served by the Knights of Columbus. It was an evening of good food and fellowship.
We enjoyed meeting and getting to know these young men. Many of these men are already members of the Knights of Columbus and they were most appreciative of the Holy Hour and also the opportunity to share the company of each other, the priests in attendance, and their brother Knights. As our Seminarians left at the end of the evening, they were very grateful and also asked us to pray for them. We promised to do so.
The Knights of Council 2544 are delighted and proud of the opportunity to play a role in this special evening. We hope to make this Holy Hour and barbecue an annual event.
