To honor of our Veterans of all US military services our Council has sponsored a plaque mounted in St Thomas the Apostle Church that displays the Names, Service and Rank of members of the parish that have or are servicing in our military.
The plaque will continue to be updated as new members are submitted.
Students from Jefferson Township High School presented “Project Stay Gold” to the members of Knights of Columbus Council 5510 Milton/Oak Ridge.
Project Stay Gold is a student abolitionist movement using the power of education that hopes to raise awareness, advocate for abolition, and support rescue and prevention missions and fight modern day slavery and human trafficking.
Recently, they have gained federal recognition, testifying before a US Senate panel concerning education and human trafficking. They will also be accompanying Senator Jeffrey Chiesa to numerous other New Jersey schools carrying their message of awareness and action.
The movement presented their mission, accomplishments, and future plans to the Joseph Lamb Knights of Columbus on September 19th. They were gifted with a donation to further their work calling attention to human trafficking and its elevated presence around major sporting events like the Super Bowl, which will be held at MetLife Stadium in 2014.

Well, Casino Nite was a big success. St. Thomas the Apostle’s all purpose room was transfigured into a restaurant lounge with casino! The food provided by Portofino’s Restaurant was excellent and enjoyed by all in a relaxing atmosphere with some pleasant jazz music accompanying their dinner.
The modest price of $50 was well worth it. Included with dinner were beverages (beer, wine, water or soda) and dessert, a variety of several cakes that would satisfy any palate.
St. Thomas’s back hall room literally turned into a Casino with tables and dealers for blackjack a craps, roulette, stud poker and Texas hold ’em. After all the gaming, great prizes were raffled off. A portion of the profits will be used for our Annual Scholarship Fund. A great cause and a NITE for all!
