Charity is the principal watchword of our order, and our council performs many fundraising activities throughout the year including food sales, an Annual Casino Night, passbook sales, etc. The funds raised from these activities are primarily donated back to the Church either directly or indirectly in the form of Youth Scholarships or Parish Fair support for example.

The funds for these social activities are drawn from our annual membership dues.
