The members of the Knights of Columbus, Council 9332 are proud to announce that we are the recipients of an International Award 2016-2017, 3rd Place, from the Knights of Columbus International for our work in the Ministry of Outreach for Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate, Mexico. At our California State Convention this past May, we also received “Best in State” Award for this same ministry. This ministry was started by Fr. Brian Kelly over 20 years ago and our Council became involved a little over 8 years ago. Four times a season, from September to March, we journey to Tecate, Mexico, to provide the nuns and boys and girls a hot meal and some donated supplies, such as bedding and clothing. We also feed the hungry volunteers from our sister parish-St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Carlsbad, CA. This ministry is a labor of love for us and one that we eagerly look forward to each season. So, we would like to share this award with our faith community of Santa Sophia Parish.
