WATERTOWN KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS # 259 MAKE A NOTABLE DONATION TO THE

SACRED HEART FOUNDATION

 

            In September Grand Knight John Morgia (left) presented Jayme St. Croix (right), President of the Board of Directors for the Sacred Heart Foundation, with a check for $10,000.00 which establishes a scholarship in the name of the K of C Council #259 to be given yearly for the education of Priests and Brothers throughout the world.

Monies come from the “Pennies from Heaven” fund that the Watertown K of C Council has established for the support of seminarians education for Priesthood.  Council members collect the “Pennies from Heaven” funds monthly from the local Watertown parishes.  The funds are managed by the Board of Trustees of the Watertown K of C Council and are used when requests are received to aide seminarians in their studies.  The success of this program has resulted in supporting those within the Dioceses of Ogdensburg and now with this donation to the Sacred Heart Foundation support will be given to Missionaries of the Sacred Heart Seminarians around the world.

Because of the great success of the “Pennies from Heaven” program the Watertown Knights of Columbus has recently partner with the Northern New York Community Foundation to maintain their “Pennies from Heaven” funds and has established a fund for “Catholic Education” in Watertown.  Members of the Watertown Council will continue their monthly collections with one month for the education of seminarians and the next month will be for education needs in the Catholic elementary school.
