Knights of Columbus Night at Somerset Patriots

Council 2544 and Columbian Club officers are organizing a night at the ballpark. We will be going to see the Somerset Patriots on Friday evening, Sept. 6. Game time is 7:05PM. Bring the kids and grandkids! Tickets purchased through us are only $5.00 each. This is also fireworks night so there will be a great show after the game. See the attached flier for more details. This is not a fundraiser. It is a night for Brother Knights and their families to spend some time together. Please let us know by August 30th if you plan to attend and the number of tickets you would like to purchase. You can email Jim Whelan at KOC2544_dunellen@yahoo.com. or talk to Jim Ashworth at the Columbian Club. Based on availability, we want to try to get tickets in the same area so we can sit together. Please try to join us for an enjoyable evening.

SEMINARIAN BARBEQUE

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.

Eyes For The Needy

Knights of Columbus Council 2544 donates 684 Pairs of Eyeglasses for the Needy

 

During the month of July, the Knights of Columbus Council 2544 collected 684 pairs of used eyeglasses for donation to New Eyes for the Needy.  This Millburn based group sorts, measures, refurbishes, and distributes prescription eyeglasses to those unable to afford them.  Since beginning collection in 2017, the Knights of Columbus have collected over 1,500 pairs of eyeglasses.  If you have old pairs of glasses that you would like to donate, there is a receptacle in front of the Council Hall (647 Grove St., Dunellen, NJ) and in the narthex of Our Lady of Fatima Roman Catholic Church (501 New Market Rd., Piscataway, NJ).

 

Special thanks to brother Alan Kulig for coordinating this important program.
