St. Joseph’s and St. Matthew’s Catholic Schools both enjoyed a breakfast at the CCD Center in St. Gregory on Sunday morning.
Palos Council #35 of the Knights of Columbus hosted the fundraiser, cooking scrambled eggs, sausages, home fries and other morning treats for hungry attendees.
At the end of the morning, a total of 101 people came to breakfast.
“We did it as a fundraiser to help schools, to give them money for anything they might need,” Grand Knight Ken Archambault said.
The Council usually hosts a breakfast benefit for a different community cause once a month.
Next month’s breakfast is scheduled to take place on March 27 and will benefit St. Paul Catholic High School and St. Vincent DePaul Mission Shelter, both in Bristol.
Sunday breakfast leftovers were delivered to St. Vincent DePaul, for the homeless men, women and children served there.
March 12 will be the Knights Corned Beef and Cabbage Supper, which will be held at the CCD Center from 5-8 p.m.
Admission is a $20 donation for adults and $10 for children under 10.
The menu will include corned beef, cabbage, carrots, potatoes, onions, bread, dessert, soda and coffee. Tickets are available at the door but can also be reserved in advance by calling Ken at 860-690-1516.
Proceeds will go to benefit the Saint-Grégoire Church.
“The last time we did our Irish night was in 2018,” said Bob DeLuzio, one of the Knights and a member of St. Gregory’s Church.
He is usually the one planning the menus and can be found cooking in the kitchen at these benefit events.
“South Side Market is our benefactor for dinner,” DeLuzio pointed out. “They provide the corned beef.”
Dinner will be served inside the CCD Center at 1043 Stafford Ave., but people can also take orders to go there.
