CLERGY NIGHT

Clergy Night is a KofC Greater Cleveland Chapter activity celebrating vocations.  The dinner event features speakers on vocations and clergy life, and a Clergyman of the Year is named.  Councils invite and provide dinners for priests, brothers, deacons, and seminarians (Gilmour, Inc. and Gilmour Council typically split these expenses for our guests).  This is an occasion for councils to award stipends to needy seminarians.  Knights purchase their own dinners.  Seminarians wait tables and provide clean up.  Clergy Night is celebrated on the last Friday in January. Gilmour Council typically assists (4) seminarians with $500 in assistance.
