St. John Vianney Council 8201 in Spokane has supported seminarians at Bishop White Seminary for 10 years, and for the past three years, members have participated in a 100-mile bike ride to help raise funds. This year, Tim Drake and Erik Wakeling participated in the ride, raising more than $2,100 for the seminary and for the men studying to become priests there.

Laborers in the village of Bar-Kowino, Kenya, test dig for a village well that was funded in part by Msgr. F. X. Prefontaine Council 11085 in Seattle. Knights have supported orphans in Bar-Kowino for many years and knew that the village's water supply was unreliable and sometimes contaminated. As a result, St. John the Evangelist Church launched a campaign to drill a permanent well with a solar-powered pump and a 6,000-liter storage tank. Knights sponsored one benefit that raised $1,700 and provided support and manpower at several other events. The council also donated six soccer balls and $50 to Auxiliary Bishop Montfort Stima of Blantyre in Central Africa.
