Council Activities

Our council activities embody the core values of the knights worldwide: Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism. Since our foundation in 1914 we have continued involvement in the local community in all three parishes in San Pedro, and in the greater Church through family focused events such as the annual Parish Fiesta which they founded in 1917 at Mary Star of the Sea. Our volunteers and our fund raising efforts help provide food for the hungry, scholarships for local students, aid to handicapped children, support of our clergy, promoting vocations and defending the rights to life.

CELEBRACION de DIA de LOS MUERTOSThe Celebracion de Dia de Los Muertos dinner/dance was a Great Success thanks to teamwork, planning & innovative ideas. It was a family event & sold out! Face Painting, Special Entertainment & Excellent Food led to high praise from our Mary Star Pastor, Fr. Harrigan. This should be our signature fall event!


MARY STAR OF THE SEA FIESTA Our council supported the Mary Star of the Sea Fiesta held on July 21-23. Included in our support was running the Bingo game and the gold fish booth as well as selling ride tickets.


NOCHE DE FIESTA For the second year in a row, a successful Noche De Fiesta dinner was held at Holy Trinity on June 24 under the leadership of Chris Marino. The dinner included entertainment provided by Mariachi Mendez 2000 and the Grupo Folklorico Nadino dancers. Proceeds are used to support Holy Trinity Church and school


2017 HOOLEY Under the leadership of John Stammerich, this year's Hooley was a resounding success. The Hooley itself required the efforts of many of our brother Knights. From the profits, as shown on the left, a check for $3000 was presented to Father Sebastian, pastor of the Holy Trinity parish. Below are photos taken at this years Hooley.

 

FRIDAY LENTEN MEALS: Our council provided the Friday lenten meals at Mary Star of the Sea Church during this lenten season. The meals were served following the 5:15PM mass. Response by the parishioners to this program has been very positive.

ONELIFE LA: Angels Gate Council 1740 participated in OneLife LA on 01/21/2017 in Los Angeles. Under Bob Hohman's leadership, we conducted a signup for the three weeks in January preceding the event. On Saturday, January 21, using a contracted bus, 38 persons were brought to the event site (10 others drove themselves). The event was very successful, drawing thousands of people from the LA area. You may read a detailed description of our council's activities in support of this event by clicking on OneLifeLA Support

 

COUNCIL 1740 VOCATION SUPPORT Shown on the photo on the left is Dr. Vince Dever presenting our council's vocation donation. The two sponsored postulants (not wearing veils) are Isabel Amante and Candice Punzalan, members of the Bethlehem Priory of the Norbertine Sisters of Wilmington Californa

 

NORBERTINE SISTERS COUNCIL VISIT The Norbertine Sisters came to our December council meeting to thank us for the vocation support and to describe their community. Three years ago, they found a home at Sts. Peter and Paul Parish in Wilmington where Norbertine Fathers serve as Pastors. A collection was taken up among the Knights at the meeting and $600 was presented to the sisters. An additional $420 was raised later and delivered to the sisters by our Grand Knight, Mark Rollice, bringing our total donation to $1020.

HT DONUT SERVICE:Our council has supported providing donuts to the parishoners at Holy Trinity after mass for the last several years. Pictured are John Stammreich, Mario Saborio and Tony Tamalunas.

AFTER-MEETING FELLOWSHIP:Thanks to Phil Sandoval for taking over cooking of the after-meeting spread.

ACTIVITIES PHOTOS: Columbia Magazine has a section called "Knights in Action;" our aim is to have Council 1740 shown there. With the heavy volume of submissions, the editors cannot use all of them. They post the accompanying articles to www.Kofc.org/knightsinaction, where we are shown this month. Please keep your action photos coming. We can always use them on this website.

 

HAVE A CELL PHONE? Take a picture at your next KofC activity or event and email it to Joe Lauro, jlauro@sbcglobal.net. Please give a brief description of who, what and where.
