“No plans yet,” Mark McCoy, church member said. “We are in the conceptual phase. We are hoping to come to an accepted position on how to rebuild.”

Meanwhile the Knights of Columbus group at the church are having monthly meals in the Kennedy Gym, at 705 S. Holbrook as a fundraiser for the rebuilding of the church.

Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners, according to Their intent is to bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.

This month, it is Friday, November 18, and the meal is homemade chicken noodle soup and cream of potato soup, with the desserts prepared by the Catholic women of the church.

Tea, coffee or water goes along with the meal, with a suggested free will donation of $7 per meal.

The meal is from 5-7 p.m.

“The community has been so supportive,” McCoy said. “All proceeds will go to the rebuild of the church.”
