KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS ANNOUNCE RECORD GIVING

          NEW HAVEN, Connecticut (CWNews.com) - The Knights of Columbus Catholic fraternal order announced on Wednesday that it had given a record $110.7 million to charitable causes in 1998 in addition to 55 million hours of donated time by members.

          Of the approximate $111 million, $90 million was raised by state councils and local units which donated directly to charitable causes of their own choosing, including church and community projects and youth programs. The remaining $21 million was given by the Supreme Council and Knights of Columbus designated funds.

          Assistance to church organizations, such as parishes, schools, religious education programs, seminaries/seminarians, vocations, promotional efforts and miscellaneous church projects, totaled $33.3 million in 1998 and $289 million in aggregate over the past ten years, the group said.
