Florence Makes a Difference Day
Updated: Nov 4, 2022
On Saturday, October 22, 2022, the Sir Michael Fitzgerald Council of the Knights of Columbus participated with the Town of Florence and other non-governmental groups to complete several work projects throughout the town to improve the quality of life of Florence citizens.
Your council took on the task of clearing weeds, overgrown shrubs and trees from a home owned by a 90 year old person who could not physically keep up the yard. These knights braved thorny mesquite and palo verde trees, waist high weeds and sticker bushes and lots of dust to clean up the long neglected yard.
By engaging with the community to support people in need, the Knights of Columbus were an example of our first core principle- Charity. Your Knights of Columbus demonstrated a teaching of our Catholic faith, “ Love thy neighbor as thy self.”
