Knight's Easter Pilgrimage to Historic Pittsburgh Churches
On April 27, the Knights sponsored a bus tour of three famous churches in Pittsburgh. Almost 50 pilgrims from the South Hills visited Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, Polish Hill, St. Nicholas Church, Millvale, and St. Anthony's Chapel, Troy Hill.
Lunch was also enjoyed at Cafe Raymond in the Strip District.
We're very thankful for the wonderful tours led by parishioners/docents at the churches. Everybody thought they were quite good, and everyone learned and saw something new!
The pilgrimage was a great success, and many were grateful
to the Knights for organizing this special event at Easter time. Hopefully this will become a recurring annual event!

On October 16, the South Hills Council hosted their celebrated annual Charity Dinner, where we recognized the numerous charities from the South Hills and Greater Pittsburgh Area that we financially support. This year, we presented over $39,000 to these organizations for their work in education, social services, life issues, etc.
Those organization with representatives present to receive their checks were: People Concerned for the Unborn Child, Human Coalition, Angles Place, St. Thomas More School, St. Anne School, St. Winifred Food Bank, Oakland Catholic, Central Catholic, Little Sisters of the Poor, St. Vincent de Paul, and Mary’s Place.

We were happy to welcome four priests who joined us, Fr. Mike Ackerman (our keynote speaker), Fr. James Chepponis, Fr. Richard Infante, and Fr. Joseph Codori.
It is important for the Council to maintain good relations with the organizations/charities we serve, and it's great to put faces to names. Everyone is grateful for the opportunity to hear what they are doing in our area to help with the many needs we have. A good time, with very good food and nice company, was had by all who attended. Thank you for everyone who came, and we look forward to next year!
