Camp Sancta Maria Summer Camp Scholarships

Calling on all St. William Boys and Girls! Interested in a week at Summer Camp? Why not consider Camp Sancta Maria in Gaylord, Michigan! This Catholic Camp has been offering ‘Wholesome Recreation in a Religious Atmosphere’ since 1933. The Knights of Columbus and St. William Dads’ Club have scholarship monies available for Parish boys and girls who might be interested in attending camp in 2024 but may have a financial hardship. Camp is open to boys ages 8-16 and girls ages 8-15. If you are interested please contact Chick Conklin at 248-891-4464 for more information. If you’re 16-18 and are interested in being a Camp Counselor, call the Camp at 248-822-8199 for more information on how to apply for a Summer job! Why not consider spending a week in the outdoors of Michigan this Summer!

SAVE THE DATES for Summer Events!

The Knights of Columbus want to thank everyone who supported our Monthly Breakfasts from September to June. Through your generosity we provided $4,491 to St. Vincent de Paul here at St. William Parish for their work in the Community – an OUTSTANDING show of support from our Parishioners! We’ll be back in September, BUT we have Summer events planned for the Parish! Our Ice Cream Socials will be on July 13th and 14th after the 4:30PM Mass and 12:30PM Mass respectively. Any donations will go to our Vocations Fund that helps support

3 Seminarians from Sacred Heart Major Seminary. And don’t forget that the Parish Picnic will be on August 11th this year, more later in a separate article! And finally, we’ll continue to have the Scholarship Raffle Drawings at our Business Meeting – tickets are still available from any Knight or Usher! So SAVE THE DATES and join us for some Summer Fun!

The Knights of Columbus Council 4064 is part of the largest lay Catholic family fraternal service organization in the world (more than 1.8 million members). At St. William Parish we currently have about 140 members. As Knights, we strive to end the Culture of Death while recreating the Culture of Life. We promote Right-to-Life activities, conduct an annual Tootsie Roll Drive for the mentally impaired, and support the work of both the St. Vincent de Paul Society and the Hospitality House. We are a socially active group, as well as providing service and support to organizations throughout the Parish.

Meeting Schedule:
1st and 3rd Mondays of each month.

Men who wish to become members must be Catholics in good standing and at least 18 years old.

Contact Todd Diffenderfer at 248-881-3132 or talk to one of the Knights during the breakfast that we offer to the Parish after the 10:00 Mass on the first Sunday of each month.
