Knights of Columbus Council 5495 of St Francis is currently sponsoring four seminarians studying for the priesthood. The Knights provide a $500 stipend for everyday living expenses to each seminarian. In the past, an annual spaghetti dinner and raffle has been held to raise funds to support this effort.
Due to COVID restrictions, the dinner and raffle have had to be cancelled the past two years. This year an online campaign is being set up through the parish web site/app to collect donations for this cause. The campaign runs from June 6th through June 19th . The parish is accepting online donations, or a check can also be dropped off at the parish office or mailed to Ken DeVos at 2418 SW 149th St, Burien WA 98166.
Your support for these seminarians is encouraged and appreciated. Please CLICK HERE TO DONATE and support our future priests.
If submitting a check, make it out to Knights of Columbus Council 5495.
Seminarians that have been supported:
Richard Ordos, Mt Angel Seminary
Matthew Ockinga, Mundelein Seminary
Kyle Rink, Mundelein Seminary
Jeffrey Kalsbeek, Bishop White Seminary
