Lots and lots of pennies for heaven

the Inland Register

(From the February 16, 2012 edition of the Inland Register)

George Czerwonka, State Secretary for the Knights of Columbus, stopped by the Catholic Pastoral Center last month to present two checks for $25,000 each. The first was the Spokane Diocese’s share of the Knights’ “Pennies for Heaven” fund, an effort begun in 1959 that has raised more than $1 million total. This year’s $100,000 were divided four ways: $25,000 to each of the state’s three dioceses to help support vocations work, plus a second $25,000 to the Spokane Diocese to help pay down the construction debt on Bishop White Seminary.
