Due to the approach of Hurricane Matthew, the Buddhist service for Saturday, 8 Oct 2016 is canceled.
Once again this year, the Knights of Columbus is sponsoring the Catholic Citizenship Essay contest. This year’s theme is, “The Importance of Religious Freedom”. The contest is open to all Catholic students-in public, private, or parochial schools- in grades 8,9,10,11, and 12 during the current school year. Essays must reflect the assigned theme and be the student’s original work. Essays must be typed and be between 500 and 750 words in length. The student’s name should appear only on the official Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest entry form, which must be stapled to the essay. All entries become the property of the Knights of Columbus and will not be returned. Winning essays in each grade will be submitted for advanced levels of competition (district, state, national). All essays are due by Friday, Oct 21, 2016. Entry forms may be found in the chapel narthex or may be downloaded at: www.sumterkofc.org. Contact Paul Burchell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 803-983-5004 with questions.
