Welcome to Bishop Manogue Assembly (50)

of the Patriotic Degree of the

Knights of Columbus


From our Northern California Chapter President SK Edwin Gomez:

Hello Worthy Brothers,

As many of you may have noticed the smoke in the air and wondering what the Knights of Columbus are doing to help!

The Knights are not First Responders, but, are indeed second responders. The Knights go in after the smoke has cleared, no pun intended, and offer aid. Presently, our Chapter, along with the State Council, have a team actively tracking the local fires and developing a plan of action in anticipation of potential necessary assistance.

As of August 8, 2021, a total of 6,172 fires have been recorded, burning 876,055 acres across the state. The State Council is approved for $30,000.00 in gift cards and non-perishable supplies. These will be distributed to three sites in the North, Central and Southern parts of the State. In the meanwhile, our Chapter has distributed $5,000 in gift cards to the officers of the Council in Susanville. They will distribute them on an as needed basis. We also gave the pastor of St. John’s Church in Quincy $2500 worth of gift cards to distribute to those in need. St. John’s has the closest ties with Greenville, the town devastated by the Dixie fire. Non-perishables will be distributed when safe access and a location are available.

At present evacuation shelters are operating in Susanville and Quincy. In addition, Lassen Family Services and the Community Clothing Closet are providing clothing and resources.

This is a great time to support the California Columbian Charities and am asking all Councils to donate to the 365 Club as this is the Charity’s primary source of funding.
