K of C Council 103
and
Habitat for Humanity

  Through the ongoing efforts of  local Knights,  our council  continues to exemplify the Knights' spirit of community volunteerism by supporting  local  Habitat for Humanity projects.

  We will be organizing another outing soon.  If  you would like to participate in a cause that serves both our Church and our Community, please do not hesitate to join in. 

  Don't feel you can't contribute to this noteworthy endeavor because you never or rarely participate in K of C functions, or because you're not a professional tradesman.  -   Your involvement is both welcomed and wanted!!   Your Brother Knights will make you comfortable in helping the Knights help others.

  Phone Grand Knight Jack
Laviolette at 464-6009 to answer this calling for your services and sign up for our next Habitat for Humanity work outing!

You'll always have something more valuable to give than money.

 




Being a good citizen, as well as a good Christian, has always been a hallmark of the Knights.  Members of Monsignor Marshall Council 103 K of C exemplify that conviction.

As such, Council 103 Knights of Columbus endeavor to support church and community however we can.  

Brother Knights assist disabled persons by building access ramps to homes, so they may enter and leave without difficulty.  Should someone be unable to afford a wheelchair or walker, the Knights will provide.  We volunteer to help others in need.

K of C Council 103 members characterize the Knights' ideals of charity and community service by participating in local Habitat for Humanity projects.

Annually, our council awards graduating high school seniors scholarships to attend college.  Council 103 also provides financial support to local seminarians pursuing the priesthood. 

Every year, the Knights run a Tootsie Roll Fundraiser to benefit  people with disabilities.  Council 103 conducts a Raffle and a Pancake Breakfast, whose proceeds are used in charitable purposes.

We sponsor a Basketball Free Throw for  boys and girls between the ages of 10 and 14,  as a way to provide entertainment and enjoyment for the young people in our area
And, of course, we volunteer for the Catholic Youth Center's annual block party on Melville Street as well as donating bottled water and soda to the event.  Our Council assists the City of Pittsfield Parks Department "Santa Calling" helping Santa phone youngsters.

Recently, the Msgr. Eugene F. Marshall Council 103, sponsored an ice cream social for veterans living at the Soldier On shelter for homeless veterans. Residents were treated to ice cream donated by Friendly’s restaurant and toppings donated by the council. Soldier On is an organization that provides a continuum of care for veterans that includes immediate and long-term housing; treatment and recovery for addiction; food and clothing; and medical, counseling and job-related services.

Council 103 works closely with Pittsfield area parishes.  Each parish council and priest knows they may call upon the Monsignor Eugene F. Marshall Knights of Columbus Council to assist however we can, be it financial, cooking / manning a booth at a parish event, or simply hammer and nails.
