Calling all sports fans and members and friends of O’Boyle Council:
O’Boyle is organizing a summer softball team to play in the DC Fray League! We already have six members signed up, but are in need of several more.
All are welcome: Knights and non-Knights, men and women, family and friends. No experience or skill level required - just a love of fraternity, fellowship, and fun!
Games begin June 13, and will take place Thursday evenings on the National Mall.
We hope to see you there!
Twenty-five years ago O'Boyle Council 11302 was founded to take care of our four parishes (St. Peter's, St. Dominic's, St. Joseph's, and St. Vincent de Paul), build fraternity among Catholic men, and do the Gospel. We look forward to 25 more years of living Christ's mission. To signal our care, we agreed at yesterday's meeting to give $200 to St. Peter's on Capitol Hill for the Capital Improvements Campaign and $200 for St. Vincent de Paul's floor replacement.
After raising over $1,300 for St Vincent de Paul via NatsMass cookouts, we celebreated.
We had a great meeting that was very well attended. The social "hour" went well passed and we hope to see even more people next time.
Here are the two big events we want to promote.
