On Wednesday evening, April 22, a special Mass was held at Notre Dame Convalescent Home on West Rocks Road in Norwalk.

The chapel of the Convent of the Sisters of St. Thomas of Villanova was re-dedicated after being recently restored by members of Knights of Columbus Council 14360. The Brother Knights, led by Tim Horne, helped restore the chapel after it had sustained significant water damage in January.

It was a special night in Norwalk on Saturday, March 21, 2015, as Knights of Columbus Council 14360 held its sixth annual St. Patrick’s Day Fundraiser dinner in the Masterpool Great Room at St. Matthew Church. The dinner proved to be a huge success, with over 200 guests enjoying a delicious dinner, Irish dancing, and of course the company of friends and family.

The 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.

Thanks to the generosity of the attendees, the Knights raised over $4,100.00 at this year’s dinner, money that will go directly to the many local organizations it supports, such as:

Malta House, Notre Dame Convalescent Home, Homes for the Brave, Fisher House, Our Lady of Solace in Coney Island NY, All Saints Catholic School, Star Inc., Al’s Angels, St. Matthew Church, the Diocese of Bridgeport – Respect Life Ministry & Family and Children’s Agency- Norwalk.
