The Northern California Chapter of the Knights of Columbus presented Bishop Jaime Soto with a check for more than $4,400 to cover the cost of purchasing 30 ciboria for use by the Diocese of Sacramento at large Masses with numerous participants.
The campaign began in November 2013, when Mimnaugh suggested to the chapter that the Knights raise funds to cover the need for ciboria for diocesan Masses with large attendance. Currently at such Masses the ciboria are borrowed from neighboring parishes and sometimes enough are not available for use at events.
The call was put out to the councils and assemblies of the Northern California Chapter to raise the funds needed, Comerford said. “The response was very successful, as more than $5,500 was raised,” he noted. “The extra funds will be used to engrave the ciboria with the donation organization information. The Knights are proud to support Bishop Soto and the Sacramento Diocese in any way they can.”
