Knights of Columbus Host Franciscan Fundraiser at Our Lady of Grace Parish in Castro Valley, CA

The Knights of Columbus at Our Lady of Grace, hosted a fundraiser for the Conventual 
Franciscans of California, celebrating 35 years of ministry as the Saint Joseph of Cupertino Province!  We were joined by our Friars of Our Lady of Grace, St. Joseph of Cupertino Friary, AND 5 of our Novices from Arroyo Grande, along with Fr. Maurice!  All had a great time.  The event was catered by Miraglia Catering (Mike Miraglia is a member of our parish, a Knight of Columbus, and the Head Chef at the most wonderful catering business in Castro Valley), and included a Silent Auction, 50/50 Raffle, and an opportunity to share in the ministry of the friars through a donation.  A special Thank You to all who came and supported us.  But more so, we are pleased to share some time with the people of Our Lady of Grace, and are happy that so many of you came and said you enjoyed the night!  The friars, as is a Franciscan tradition, ended the event with a singing of the Salve Regina (the featured video of this post).  May God continue to Bless the Franciscans with many more years of ministry on the west coast, and at Our Lady of Grace! Happy Advent.
