Greetings Brother Knights and Community Members,

This year has been unlike any others.   Our council, like many other organizations, has been unable to continue with our normal fundraising initiatives.   Our breakfasts, our largest source of funds, have been cancelled since last February.    Each year, we raise over $10,000, which is used to help support a multitude of deserving Catholic organizations and causes including:

  • St. Joseph’s Elementary School
  • Immaculata Regional High School
  • St. Charles Garnier Parish
  • Kelowna Right to Life Society
  • Bursaries for graduating high school students
  • Ozamam Recovery   House

While our fundraising may be suspended, the need of these organizations is greater than ever.

Giving is nothing new to the Knights of Columbus – it’s what we are about.   Most of us give generously to many charitable organizations.    This year, we are asking our council members, their families, and their friends to consider giving at home.   Our own St. Charles Garnier Columbus Charity Society is a registered charity that can be used to turn your generosity into support for our Council’s work.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 so that we may continue with our work.    Your donation will go a long way towards this goal.  If every member of our council contributes just $50, it will raise over $6,000.    If those members who can afford it give more, we will reach our goal.   You can donate using the form below.    All donations will receive a tax receipt.  Until this pandemic is over, your generosity is the lifeline we need.

God Bless,

Knights of Columbus Council 9845

The St. Charles Garnier Knights of Columbus council is offering bursaries of $1000 to graduating high school students attending post-secondary institutions next fall. Applications will be evaluated on the basis of financial need, academic merit, service to parish or community organizations and involvement in sports or other activities.

To apply, please complete the application below. The deadline for submissions is May 11th, 2020.

The application period is now closed.

The Knights of Columbus would like to thank our parishioners and visitors for their support of our family breakfasts.   We are pleased to host this event to help bring our parish community together.  The funds raised though our breakfasts support our Catholic schools, provide funds to local charities and help fund post-secondary bursaries.

Breakfasts are held after 8:30 and 10:30 masses in the parish hall on the last Sunday of every month; September through May.  Your support makes a difference!

 

Congratulations to the recipient of our 2019 High School Graduate Bursary: James Donick – Immaculata Regional High School

The KofC is proud to help our Catholic families attend post-secondary education.  We wish James and all Immaculata graduates all the best in their future studies.
