August 10-13, 2017: Come August, another Saint Rocco’s Feast in Edgeworth, Malden. The Knights set up their booth on Thursday with five Knights in attendance, the biggest group yet. The booth and tables went up quickly. On Friday we opened selling a larger menu than ever. Here’s are first day crew manning the booth.

Scott Littlejohn realized the signs were problematic especially if it rained. So, this Knight created signs in plastic pouches which were than sewn to the canopy. Each individual can and does make a contribution. We welcome them all.
The Council met on Wednesday, January 21, 2015, and confirmed several events for the coming months.
- We will serve a pasta supper at the Monsignor Neagle apartments on Saturday, February 14, at 4pm.
- Spring Training Breakfast, in honor of the Red Sox, will served after the 9am and 11am masses on Sunday, February 22. Help will be needed anytime between 7am and 1pm: setup and cooking before the meal, serving line during, and clean up after.
- St Patrick’s Day Supper is planned after the 4pm mass for Saturday, March 14, after coordination with GOF. We will be inviting step dancers from the Heavey Quinn Academy again. Help will be needed as early as 8am and as late as 7pm: as before, setup and cooking before, serving during, and clean up after.
- With Palm Sunday coming, the Council will meet in the Parish Hall to make palm crosses on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, March 24 – 26, from 7pm to 8pm. Bring scissors. If you do not know how to fold palm crosses, both instructions and training will be available.
Please consider helping out at any or all of these events. In particular, helping to make palm crosses is a great time for fellowship with fellow knights and their families as all are invited to help.
Forty pumpkins are needed for the Housing Families Breakfast on Sunday, October 16, 2014. Next Wednesday, the Immaculate Conception Youth Group will decorate the pumpkins for those donating for the purpose. They are immensely creative. Just to see the variety of designs is reason to come to the Breakfast. But come early, the most creative pumpkins designs go first. To enable this, please consider donating one or more pumpkins for the purpose. Aldi’s, for example, is selling them for $2.99. If you buy to donate, please bring them to the Immaculate Conception Parish Hall sometime this weekend so they are available to Scott Morin’s Youth Group.
On Saturday, September 27, 2014, the Knights will cook and server a Pasta Supper for all comers. Costs are $7 a ticket with children under 12 free. Look for your friendly Knight ticket seller after Mass or buy a ticket at the door.
The second day was just as busy.
On the first day at 2:30pm, a squad of Knights assembled at Immaculate Conception Church, our home base, to collect tables, cooking gear, and the refrigerated food. Joe, the facilities manager, used his truck to transport the tables. We proceeded to Pearl Street.
