Cowichan Valley Knights breakfast comes with cheques

The Knights of Columbus in Duncan are hosting a special breakfast this weekend and they hope everyone can come out

The Knights of Columbus in Duncan are hosting a special breakfast this weekend and they hope everyone can come out not just for some food but to help them celebrate some important community organizations and institutions.

On Nov. 27 at St. Edward’s Catholic Parish, the Knights of Columbus will be serving pancakes in the church basement following mass. (The service ends at about 11 a.m. and so the activities downstairs will likely get underway at around a quarter after.)

Lorne Thicket, with the Knights of Columbus, said the breakfast is a great way for them to get together with friends, family and fellow community members to break bread before the holidays get into full swing.

“We have 11 charities that we support,” he said. “I’m not sure how many of the 11 are coming, but there will be a good many of them.”

Those charities are Queen of Angels School, St. Joseph’s School, Cowichan Valley Basket Society, Providence Farm, Clements Centre Society, Special Olympics, Warmland House, Duncan Christian School, Cowichan Valley Hospice Society and Glenora Farm.

“We have cheques for them, anywhere from $500 to $1,000 depending on what charity it is,” said Thicket. “We’ve invited them all to come to the church on Sunday after mass and partake in the pancake breakfast and we’re going to present them with these cheques.”

The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization.
