Knights of Columbus Council 14360 held their fifth annual St. Patrick’s Day Fundraiser dinner on Saturday, March 8 at St. Matthew Church in Norwalk. An all-time record of 227 guests came for a delicious dinner and fun. “Every year our council and parish support us and have fun at the same time,” said Grand Knight George Ribellino. He continued, “ my brother Knights helped immensely with set-up on Friday, serving and raffle ticket sales and break down that night. Success does not have “I” in it.”

The council made over $4,000 towards their charitable fund, which covers many groups around Norwalk. “We want our parish to know that the hard earned money they donate goes right out to either our church, or to the community for those in need,” said event co-chair and Deputy Grand Knight Scott Criscuolo. “Our brother Knights pulled together as they always do and provided a fine evening for our parishioners.”

Co-chair and Financial Secretary Anthony Armentano also praised the dinner’s success. “It is an honor to be able to serve so many people as a result of the dinner’s success”, said Armentano.

Thanks to the generosity of our parish, the council donated to both St. Matthew itself, as well as Al’s Angels and to Notre Dame Convalescent Home. The Council also honored Sister Sally Norcross for all the great work that she does for the council and the church.

This fifth annual St. Patrick’s Day dinner is the council’s oldest tradition. Starting from just 81 people in 2010, the dinner has become an annual tradition at St. Matthew Parish.
