Thanks to Fr. John A. Perricone

for Kicking Off Our Inaugural Theology on Tap

We had a great turnout for our first KofC Council 1711 Theology on Tap.  We were honored to have Fr. John A. Perricone give the talk for the evening on "What Is The Meaning of Theology?"  It was a great evening. We had a couple of cold ones with some great company and learned a lot. We're in the process of planning more Theology On Taps with a variety of great speakers and hope you all will join us. We're also looking forward to having Fr. Perricone return for another wonderful talk.

Fr. John A. Perricone, Ph.D., is Professor of Philosophy at Iona College in New Rochelle, New York. His articles have appeared in St. John’s Law Review, The Latin Mass, New Oxford Review and The Journal of Catholic Legal Studies.

Thank You for Helping Council 1711

Raise $2,207 for Persecuted Christians in the Middle East

We raised $2,207 at our brunch fundraiser to help persecuted Christians in the Middle East. Thank you to everyone who attended and to everyone who sent in their very generous donations to this worthy cause.
Christians in the Middle East are facing genocide because of their faith, and in many instances, being forced to flee their homes. The Knights of Columbus responded with the Christian Refugee Relief Fund, which has provided humanitarian assistance, primarily in Iraq, Syria and the surrounding region. Christians in Iraq are at a tipping point and could disappear without aid.
   - The KofC partners with medical clinics to help persecuted refugees.
   - The KofC assists with food programs for persecuted Christians.
   - $2,000 can move a family displaced by ISIS back into their home.
 “We must act and act quickly if Christianity is to survive in the Middle East.”
   - Supreme Knight Carl Anderson
"Without the help of the Knights of Columbus, the Christians of Iraq would have disappeared. Thank you for standing with us."
   - Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil
