K of C Helps Assure Future For Local Catholic Schools

Msgr_and_KofCThe Brooklyn and Queens chapters of the Knights of Columbus held a special event at Citi Field to assist in raising funds for Futures in Education and Tomorrow’s Hope.

Both organizations offer financial support to families in the dioceses of Brooklyn and Rockville Centre, respectively, interested in sending their children to Catholic school.

Prior to a Mets’ game, more than $7,000 was presented to Futures in Education to distribute as scholarship money. Msgr. Jamie Gigantiello, vicar for development for the Diocese of Brooklyn, thanked the Knights of Columbus for their partnership and continued support.
