Drive Thru Pasta Dinner was a Sold Out Success!
Our council hosted its first fundraiser for the 2021-2022 Columbian Year. Our worthy treasure, Br. Bob Cook chaired this drive-thru pasta dinner, which included pasta in meat sauce, large salad, garlic bread and dessert, all for just $20 for a meal for two. The event was held Friday, Sep. 17th. Our pastor and Worthy Chaplain, Fr. Sylvester and Deacon Gary greeted each vehicle and delivered the dinners. Many thanks to the kitchen chairman PGK Al Garcia and the pasta crew, PGK Adin Selby and Ted Mandalla, as well as all the other brothers who helped make the event successful. All monies raised will go to support the parish, as well as the various local, national, and international charities our council supports. (updated 9/18/21)

We Return to In-Person Meetings every Third Tuesday!
Based upon guidance from the CDC, California State government and Knights of Columbus Supreme, our meetings are again being held in-person at St. Maria Goretti, in the St. Gabriel Room (next to the kitchen) every third Tuesday of the month beginning with dinner at 7:00 pm. Meetings usually last one hour. We usually begin at 6:15 with dinner (for a small fee) and social time to catch up with each other before the meeting. It is awesome to once again meet together face-to-face. Mark your calendars and plan to join us every third Tuesday of each month! Mask wearing will be optional. (updated 7/22/21)
