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.

ONE LIFE LA: Our branch provided a bus to bring our parishoners to the OneLifeLA march on January 20th in downtown LA.

TOOTSIE ROLL DRIVE: With the proceeds from the Tootsie Roll drives in our three churches, a check was presented to the Willenberg School by our GK Gene Wahl and SK Danny Eslava.

SAN PEDRO HOLIDAY PARADE 2017: Angels Gate Council 1740 participated in the San Pedro Holiday Parade on 12/03/2017. For the first time we had a float. Overall we had a good crew, and it was really good to have Fr. Harrigan walk with us spreading the joy of Christmas.


LITTLE SISTERS OF THE POOR SUPPORT: Our branch supported the Little Sisters of the Poor Boutique held on November 11. We provided security, setup/tear down and food services.

OUR LADY OF THE ROSARY PAINTING: SK Tony DeGirolamo gifted our branch with an Italian painting entitled "Our Lady of the Rosary of Pompeii". The painting was blessed at our fifth Sunday mass on 29 October and now proudly hangs in our meeting room. Thank you, Tony.

CELEBRACION de DIA de LOS MUERTOS: The 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.


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.
