Antonio G. Vittorini Memorial Pasta Dinner for Vocations

Annually, the Knights of Columbus at St. Therese of Lisieux in Shelby Twp. host and sponsor a fundraising pasta dinner with proceeds helping seminarians to continue their education in their journey toward ordination to the priesthood.  Last year, in January just before our annual pasta dinner we lost our beloved State Secretary of the Michigan Knights of Columbus, Antonio Vittorini.  We were proud to be the home council of Tony.  He had a very special place in his heart for seminarians, especially those from Sacred Heart Major Seminary right here in Detroit.  He helped at many of the pasta dinners by supervising the creation of the pasta sauce – his own recipe.  Beginning this year, all pasta dinners for vocations will be known as The Antonio G. Vittorini Memorial Pasta Dinner for Vocations to honor Tony’s commitment to vocations and the seminarians. 


 To keep Tony’s commitment alive, The Knights of Columbus of St. Therese of Lisieux Council #11957 wish to invite all of you to this years’ ANTONIO G. VITTORINI MEMORIAL PASTA DINNER FOR VOCATIONS ON Saturday, January 26, 2019 beginning at 6:00 p.m. doors open at 5:30 p.m.  Free will donations will be accepted at the dinner.  St. Therese of Lisieux 48115 Schoenherr Shelby Twp., MI 48315.

Tables of 10 may be reserved by calling Grand Knight John Lamanna at 586-306-3178 or Deputy Grand Knight Rick Fisher at 586-215-9182
