We Need Council Registrations in early February as the Dinner is coming quickly on February 22, 2022.
We need this information as early as possible to plan for this event.

Attached is the registration form for the event to be sent to our Worthy Chapter Treasurer Bill Boiko with your monies for the event. Please don’t forget to invite all clergy, religious, and seminarians in your parish to this great event. We hope you all have a wonderful New Year’s Eve and a great 2022. If you would like to donate something towards the raffle for this great event, please contact Mike McLaughlin our CRAD committee chairman at I have attached the donation letter as well.

All Austin Knights of Columbus Councils and Assemblies in the Austin Area should reach out to the Religious (this includes Priests, Brothers, Deacons, Sisters, and Seminarians) in their area to ensure they are invited to this Appreciation meal. As a reminder each Council sponsors their area Religious (include them on your Registration and Remittance form- attached). Father Will Rooney will be this year’s keynote speaker.

Registration Procedure:
Please find attached the Clergy and Religious Appreciation Dinner Registration and Remittance form.
Completion: Please use the Registration and Remittance Form. Please register each council member, their guest AND all Religious attending the Appreciation meal. Record one name per line and please indicate any Religious on the list by filling in the “R” box next to the specific attendee. Please feel free to make additional copies of the Registration and Remittance Form if required.

● Cost $30 per seat
● Table Sponsor – Add an additional $100 to sponsor a table which will reserve up to 8 seats and include your Council / Assembly number in the program as a table sponsor
● Religious Gifts – Each Council/Assembly is to bring a $25 gift card for each clergy member/religious they are bringing plus one to help cover clergy/religious not affiliated with a parish/council, such as the growing number of Dominican Sisters of Mary. We highly recommend that you add these to your registration form and let the Chapter procure a variety of different $25 gift cards, giving you one less thing to worry about related to the event.
