Help support I.C. students attending the National March For Life in Washington, D.C.!
On January 17, 2024, thousands of Catholics from all over the country will descend on Washington, D.C. to March for Life. Without doubt, this event has been instrumental in influencing the recent shift in federal government policy on the right to life. The Knights of Columbus has a proud tradition of supporting and promoting this event.
Fr. Steven will lead I.C. parishioners again, and this year, plans to bring the youth of the parish. Each youngster pays his or her own way (coach bus, driver, hotel, meals, etc.). Council #81 has committed to a significant donation to help defray those expenses. Help Council #81’s effort to reduce the costs to the students. Your donation goes 100% to reduce the costs of travel, lodging, and meals.

Council #81 welcomes two new Fourth Degree Knights!
First Concern Pregnancy Resource Center
Ultrasound Machine Dedicated
First Concern Pregnancy Resource Center celebrated with a dedication ceremony on May 4, 2023 to thank all the donors and participants who helped make their dream come true: the installation and dedication of an Ultrasound Machine to provide expecting mothers with diagnostic assistance in addition to the other support services they offer. Fr. Steven Clemence was on hand to bless the machine and pray for its successful utilization in helping expecting mothers make their best informed choices.
Council #81 was instrumental in raising funds for First Concern Pregnancy Resource Center to purchase the Ultrasound Machine for their center in Marlborough, with matching funds from the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus. In fact, Council #81 raised almost double our fundraising goal, and used the excess to fund site renovations including a dedicated bathroom for the Ultrasound suite. Council #81 continues to partner with First Concern to provide support services to new mothers.
Joe and Megan Hermosillo pose with their family at the National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton in Emmitsburg, Md. When Joe was near death from Covid-19, the family prayed for the intercession of Mother Seton and Blessed Michael McGivney, founder of the Knights of Columbus. Joe made a full recovery, and they credit these two giants of the American Catholic Church.
