Knights work to update the kitchen at
the Blessed Sacrament Monastery

assistance to the Blessed Sacrament Monastery. Grand

Gary Mallia, PGK Bill McKeever, Jeffrey Downer, Arnel
Nablo, Ernesto Carulla, David Dumont, Paul Ferrini and
our District Deputy Jim Escott worked on Friday and or

wonderful Sisters who live at the site were very

outstanding job with this project, while providing
tremendous leadership within our council!

St Francis Council was
founded in 1957. It is named after St Francis of Assisi, who was a
Saint for the deprived. The St Francis Council works closely with both
the St Clare Parish in Farmington Hills, Mi, and Our Lady Of Sorrows
parish in Farmington, providing funds for various projects while it's
members are active participants in their parish. Our major fund
raising activities include a Spaghetti Dinner/Silent auction to help the
Mothers And Unborn Baby Care (MAUBC) and the Campaign for People with
Intellectual Disabilities, (MI or Tootsie Roll) drive to
help the Mentally Impaired. We also offer "KEEP CHRIST IN
CHRISTMAS" magnets with proceeds also going to the Campaign for People
with Intellectual Disabilities.
