The Knights of Columbus have played a huge role in supporting Father Taaffe Homes through donations, fundraising and organizing the annual FTH dinner.
The Sacred Heart-St. Louis Parish Knights of Columbus hosted the 42nd Annual Dinner in Gervais on Sunday, October 28. Guests enjoyed a barbecued salmon and steak main course with cake from the Gervais Catholic Daughters. Grand Knight Frank Belleque (1) introduced himself to attendees and was the Master of Ceremony for the night. CCS Deputy Executive Director Josh Graves expressed appreciation for the ongoing support of the dinner guests for the Father Taaffe Homes program and the young families served through it. Josh presented a Legacy of Life Award to Pat Harris (2), cousin of Father Taaffe and longtime supporter of the program. Pat has knitted many blankets for the young mothers and their babies, and has generously donated her time and gifts for many years. During the dinner, young mother Emily (3) shared her story of how Father Taaffe Homes helped her during and after her pregnancy, and how appreciative she was of her experience living with the other mothers at St. Brigid Home.
This year’s dinner raised over $9,600 for Father Taaffe Homes.
