News for Knights of Columbus
VOLUME 40 │ NUMBER 25 │ JUNE 23, 2022
Knights of Columbus around the world are called to respond to their neighbors’ needs, whether by assisting refugees of war, providing relief to those affected by natural disasters, or helping a local food pantry keep its shelves stocked. Below are some of the latest examples of the Order’s work through the Ukraine Solidarity Fund and Knights rising to the specific challenges of their communities.
Father Marek Bator, director of Caritas Częstochowa, and Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly exchange jackets April 14 during the supreme knight’s Holy Week visit to Poland and Ukraine. The exchange took place at the Caritas-run retreat center outside Częstochowa that is serving as an orphanage for more than 100 Ukrainian refugee children with support from the Order’s Ukraine Solidarity Fund.
Order Forges Partnerships to Help UkrainiansTo help provide relief to displaced people in Ukraine and refugees who have fled to Poland, the Knights of Columbus has forged key partnerships with organizations such as the Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA) and Caritas, and has received vital support from various individuals and groups, including U.S.-based Goya Foods. WATCH VIDEO
