People With Intellectual Disabilities Drive logoBrother Knights, we need your help! This year Fry’s and Safeway have decided to no longer allow the Knights to conduct the People With Intellectual Disabilities Drive (Tootsie Roll Drives) at their locations. To make up for this, we need as many Knights as possible to help solicit funds at every weekend Mass at OLMC the weekend of November 9-10th.  Please join us for 10-15 minutes after the Mass you attend and help collect monies for a very worthy cause.  Vivat Jesus!

OLMC Golf Tournament

The 12th Annual Mt Carmel Golf Tournament will be held Saturday September 14th at Superstition Springs Golf Club in Mesa, AZ.

The proceeds from this year’s tournament will benefit various Knights of Columbus Charities including The Full Circle Program, The Sisters of the Servants of the Plan of God, and the Aid to Women Center as well as other Mount Carmel Parish, School and Knights of Columbus sponsored Charities’  For more information, please visit our Tournament webpage.

Knights help needed!

We are sponsoring events for both Elizabeth House and iHelp in May. Knights are asked to bring an item from the attached lists to the May 2 General Council meeting to donate. If you are unable to attend the meeting, you can still donate by contacting grandknight@kofc6627.org.
