It was an evening to remember!!

Father Brian McKee Council 1387 celebrated it’s 105th Annual Christmas Dinner. An occasion that  goes all the way back to 1909 when Council 1387 received it’s Charter.

A festive occasion enjoyed not only by members of Council 1387 but also by our Brothers from Council 11522, St. Patrick’s Church.

An excellent selection of delectable food put on by St. Mary’s Ukrainian Church was enjoyed by all!!

To add to the event Stewart Doran, serenaded everyone with his singing and then of course the Ukrainian Dancers was a delight to watch.

The Star Council Award recognizes outstanding achievement in membership, insurance and service program activities. To be eligible to earn the Star Council Award a council must qualify for theFather McGivney, Founders. and Columbian Awards.

Unfortunately Father Marian, Council Chaplain, was not able to attend the dinner.

All of us at Council 1387 wish Father a Holy and Healthy New Year.

Next years dinner has already been booked. It will be on Saturday December 12th.



Sit Tom Bubba’s 103rd Birthday on Sept.15.

Canada’s oldest Knight.



 The annual golf tournament sponsored by Knights of Columbus Father Brian McKee Council 1387 supporting Inner City Home  held on June 28th at Pinegrove Golf Course, raised $3,500.00 for this great event supporting the good works  of Inner City Home Homes’ Programs and Services that assist those less fortunate in our Community.

It was a fun day for all who participated and ended with a terrific steak dinner as well as many great prizes being handed out that had been generously donated by local businesses.

Thanks to all the Knights who worked so hard to make this event another success! We are truly grateful for their continued support!


Our sausage making projects in June brought  out a gang of volunteers  who had alot of fun working over a two day period producing over 1500 pounds.

This project which was first introduced to the Council by Brother Richard Rivard has raised thousands of dollars for our churches in our area.

Shown in photos are our enthusiastic volunteers having a great time.



Hundreds of people showed up at the monthly Breakfast to honour Father Sharpe on his 88th Birthday.
In fact, since more people arrived than expected they ran out of food
I guess next year we will have to plan for food for at least 300!
