The Knights of Columbus is a faith and family-based Catholic men's organization dedicated to charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.
La salette Award
The recently formed Father Roger Plante Assembly announces an award in recognition of the contributions made by the beloved La Salette priest for whom this assembly is named. The Knights will select a parishioner who embodies the spirit and dedication of the late Father Roger to receive this honor. A donation will be made to the Unbound Ministry in the names of the winner and Father Roger.
All nominations are due via the online form or in hard copy in a sealed envelope to the parish office by August 11.
The award winner need not be a member of the Knights of Columbus, but must be a registered parishioner of the Catholic Church of St. Ann. The award will be presented on September 21.

knights' charity shines
You may recognize them only when fully regaled, but the nearly 400 men of the Knights of Columbus are at work year-round and the group’s beneficiaries go far beyond our parish boundaries.
“The Knights of Columbus are an integral part of the life and ministry of St. Ann,” said our pastor, Father Ray Cadran.
“They provide many services for community- building, care for those with practical needs, support for other ministries, essential fundraising, blood drives — and this is only a partial list of their dedication.”
Each year, the Knights’ fundraisers generate more than $60,000, all of which is donated to area nonprofits including the Rally Foundation for childhood cancer research, the American Heart Association, Special Olympics, veterans’ programs and of course our own church.
