NORWALK– In a long standing council tradition, Knights of Columbus Thomas J. Finn Council No. 46 honored Altar servers from 6 parishes in the Greater Norwalk area at the St. Ann Club Banquet facility on March 23rd.
One hundred twenty Altar Servers from St. Mary, St. Philip, St. Matthew, St. Jerome, and St. Ladislaus in Norwalk and Our Lady of Fatima in Wilton were treated to an Italian Family Style Dinner with their parents for a total of 202 attendees.
St. Ann Club donates the dining area and Council 46 supplied the food and awards.
“This is one of my favorite and rewarding council projects each year. The Altar Servers work hard in the ministry and it is a small token of our appreciation for their service to the church,” said Grand Knight Al Latte.
“Altar Servers can be said to be a very fortunate that he or she has been chosen by God to give his service during the celebration of the liturgy. The liturgy is a public act of worship that the church gives to God, so the service of the Altar Server is extremely important,” Latte said.
The Knights of Columbus have always recognized the great commitment to this ministry and Council 46 considers this an honor to do every year, Latte said.
Organized in 1888, Knights of Columbus Council 46 is the oldest Knights council in Norwalk. During the year the Council and its members support the community by furnishing cash, goods and services to the Norwalk Catholic Parishes and other service organizations.
The Knights provide College and High School scholarships for sons, daughters and grandchildren of Council members, and make hospital visits and attend wakes and funerals of members and their families. For more information go to kofc46.org.
