Pro-Life Fundraiser - Filipino Fiesta

Hello from Brendan Purdy, Deputy Grand Knight

Click here for the flyer for our Filipino Fiesta on Saturday June 8 at the Serra Center at 6 pm. But in addition to the flyer, we'd also like to say a little about the Knights and what it is that we do.
The Knights of Columbus is a 129 year old fraternal organization of Catholics founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven Connecticut. Since then the organization has grown from one small council to more than 14000 councils and 1.8 million members all over the world.  From the time it was founded, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. It raises funds and uses these funds to support various charitable needs and projects doing what Pope Benedict XVI calls the “practice of love…. as a community.

The Adolfo Camarillo Council 5272 provides support services to  both the St. Mary Magdalen and Padre Serra Communities. The Knights of Council 5272 are fixtures of the barbecues, dinners, pancake breakfasts and soup nights of both churches.  Any funds that we manage to raise from activities such as these sustain our projects, many of which address the youth of the community such as essay writing contests, sports competitions, local boy scout and cub scout troops and the like.

In June, we are mounting our International Night, this year called FIESTA FILIPINA, which will highlight the food and culture of the Philippines and its people. It will be on Saturday, June 8th 2013, at 6:00 in the evening.  We are cordially inviting you to participate in this worthwhile event. Tickets are reasonably priced at $16.00 and we guarantee that the evening will reward you with much more than you paid for.  We will feature a six course dinner, during which you will be entertained by a local talent singing Original Pilipino Music. and while you are enjoying your dessert you will witness and be part of a presentation of Pilipino dances. Throughout the evening you will be informed about Philippine culture and you will discover why this small country in South East Asia, is home to one of the happiest cultures in the world.

Proceeds will support the St Mary Magdalen Chapel Grotto of the Immaculate Conception & Memorial for the Unborn and the VC Life Centers Ultrasound Fund.

We certainly hope that you will be able to join us and support a worthwhile case while participating what promises to be a truly enjoyable experience.
