“We have seen incredible generosity from our members. Working closely with the Catholic Church and our Knights in Louisiana, we will continue to make a real difference in the lives of the people of the Baton Rouge area.” — Supreme Knight Carl Anderson
The Knights of Columbus has taken a leadership role in assisting those affected by flooding in Louisiana. So far, thanks to the generosity of our members, we have been able to contribute more than $260,000 to the local diocese and State Council to assist with relief work and supplies.
However, much needs to be done to assist with the long, hard recovery ahead. Your continued support can make a vital difference in healing the lives of those affected.
Contributions can be made online at www.kofc.org/flood. Donations can also be sent via check or money order. For more information, click here.
Remember, 100 percent of all donations collected by Knights of Columbus Charities Inc. will be used for disaster relief. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
In conjunction with the Parma Safety Forces and in commemoration of Patriot Day, Sunday, Sept 11th, we will be holding a blood drive at the Shoppes at Parma from 11:00 to 3:00.

Worthy Brother Knights,
Brunswick Council #4847 is sponsoring a Steak Roast on Saturday, September 3, 2016 at Saint Ambrose Catholic Church starting at 5:30 PM. There will be a great steak dinner, baked potato with all the fixings, green beans, baked beans, salad and ice cream with a sundae bar. Lemonade, coffee, tea and water are included. The cost is $20 per adult. In conjunction, the proceeds will help with the purchase and installation of a Mother Teresa statue. The statue will also be dedicated that evening in lieu of Mother Teresa's canonization on September 4, 2016 by Pope Francis.
Brunswick Council #4847 invites brother Knights throughout the Cleveland Dioceses to come out for an evening of great food, fun, and fellowship. Kid's Meal (hot dog, chips or side dish) is available for those 10 and under for $3. If possible, could you please share this information with your council members. Tickets are presale and the contacts are listed on the attached ad or you can reach out to me for more information.
Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation and what you do for the Knights, your parishes and communities. God Bless.
