SUPREME COUNCIL BUS TRIP & TOUR


A number of members have asked about possibly putting  together a bus trip to New Haven, CT to visit the Supreme Council headquarters, museum and historic St. Mary's Church.

If there is enough interest we will look at a couple of dates and pricing, trip would include: transportation, overnight accommodations, visit to Supreme and possibly vigil Mass at St. Mary's on Saturday afternoon.  We would make the trip available to our other neighboring Knights of Columbus, Fourth Degree and anyone who might be interested in going.  If you would like to go with us or have any ideas contact, Dennis Marince djmarince9@gmail.com
