Archives A chapter of knightly charity
Knights of Northern Conference make charitable donations through Bishop Brzana Chapter

May 3, 2017

With encouragement from Bishop Paul S. Loverde, the Northern Conference of the Knights of Columbus formed a charitable arm to direct fundraising efforts to support programs in the diocese.

Nearly two decades later, the Bishop Stanislaus Brzana Chapter continues to hold annual balls to raise funds for Catholic schools, right to life agencies within the diocese and other programs of the Knights’ choice .

Proceeds from the 2016 ball provided support for the INSPIRE Summit in Lake Placid, Camp Guggenheim, Trinity Catholic School in Massena, Liferight of Watertown and the Champlain Valley Right to Life.

The 19th annual charity ball and fundraiser will be held June 10 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Tupper Lake.

Proceeds this year will benefit St. Mary’s School in Canton, various right to life agencies in the diocese, Camp Guggenheim and St. Anne’s Shrine in Isle LaMotte, Vermont, where the diocesan Knights hold an annual pilgrimage.

Colonel William C. Ose of Adams, first and current president of the Bishop Brzana Chapter, and chairman of the ball  calls the evening “a wonderful time of camaraderie, prayer, dinner and dancing.” He will also conduct the “Colonel’s Auction,’ a highlight of the program.

The evening opens with Mass at 4 p.m. at St. Alphonsus Church in Tupper Lake. The liturgy is followed by a cocktail hour, dinner, officer’s oath of office and a short program, the auction and then dancing.

The dress is formal and the cost is $25 per person. Checks, made payable to the Bishop Brzana Chapter Knights of Columbus may be sent to Bill Ose, 10667 US Rt. 11, Adams, NY, 13605. Dinner choices of chicken or roast beef should be noted.

Special rates have been arranged for overnight accommodations at the Shaneen Motel in Tupper Lake if calls to 518-359-3384 are made by June 1.
