Meals for Healthcare Workers On Tuesday, April 14th, our Council along with St. Ignatius Social Action Committee was able to recognize the healthcare workers at St. Mary’s Medical Center. Working with Verrelli’s Yardley Pizza, salads and hoagies were offered to 125 staffers. We are so grateful for all medical personnel throughout the country. May God bless you and keep you safe and healthy.
The November 10, 2019 event was attended by over 170 people who were moved by speaker Deacon Steve Javie’s stories from his days as an NBA ref and his journey to the Permanent Diaconate.

On Sunday April 12, 2015 a large gathering of knights, families and clergy gathered to honor Tom O’Brien in recognition of his 60 years as a Knight and specifically for his service as Grand Knight in the preceding year. Fr. McCafferty council members were joined in the celebration by numerous members of Tom’s family. The event was organized and hosted by Dominic Licastro, and he along with fellow Knights Pat Joy, Eric Miller and Deacon Myron Moskowitz shared stories and recounted many of Tom’s accomplishments in his time with the Knights. Finally, District Deputy Ken Harkinson presented Tom with certificates of merit from both the State and Supreme offices. Tom himself treated the group to memories with a touching poem he had written of his time with the group.
Our council has been notified by Supreme that it has achieved Star council status for the 2013-2014 council years. Star council is the highest distinction that a Knight’s council may achieve. The requirements include reaching quotas for new members, new insurance policies and growth in all six of the Order’s service program categories. This is only the third time in our council’s 22 year history that Star council has been achieved, the other coming in 1996/97 and 2004/05.
Congratulations to all Knights who participated in the many activities of our council during the year, led by Grand Knight Tom O’Brien, Insurance agent Joe Grayeske, Membership Chairman Pat Joy, Financial Seccretary Ron Lantzy and the first degree team of GK Tom O’Brien, “GK Eric Miller, Deputy GK Bryan Bedard, Insurance agent Joe Grayeske, PGK Pat Joy and John Noto. The first degree team held four first degrees during the year resulting in the addition of nine new members.
The six Service Program categories and examples of our council’s activity in that area are as follows:
Family Activities: Yardley Christmas parade, annual Christmas party, Parish picnic support.
