FR. JOHN G. SERFRIED
Father Seyfried Council was founded in 1903 making it one of the oldest councils in New York State. The Council takes its name from Father Seyfried, a former pastor of St. Joseph’s Church from 1928 to 1943. During his tenure, the parish underwent significant expansion with the addition of the school and convent, which is now the Parish Center.
Being a member of the KofC is a great opportunity to be involved in the life of the parish. Some activities include Family Picnic, Lenten Soup Supper, Thanksgiving Hospitality and Easter Bunny Breakfast on Holy Saturday to support our Seminarians. Fr. Seyfried Council works with community families sponsoring High School Scholarship Program, Essay Contest on the meaning of Christmas at Holy Family Regional School, Free Throw and Soccer Contests. We conduct annual drives to benefit Long Island Blood Center as well as food and clothing for the St. Vincent de Paul Society. The Knights have been intimately involved with a number of other Organizations for various fundraisers.
Our Fraternal Council meets at 8 PM on the second Monday of the month at our hall located at 44 Church Street across from St. Joseph’s. We hold social nights, yearly fishing trip, Charity Golf Outing, Super Bowl party, Valentine’s Day dance and Crèche lighting events for our family members. If you are considering joining us, we have information for you to read at home.
