Calvary Council 8144 in South Portland sponsored a benefit dinner at St. John the Evangelist Church to benefit military families that need home heating assistance. The event — coupled with a raffle for a U.S. flag blanket — raised $2,200 to assist the families of active military personnel who need help paying their home energy bills.

Father Roger J. Bolduc Council 8414 in Grand Isle led a fundraising campaign to purchase a new coal-fired boiler for St. Gerard Church.

Knights raised nearly $30,000 for the new coal boiler and volunteered an additional 300 hours to aid with the installation.
