Three Students Receive 2021 Knights of Columbus Scholarships

The Family of Man Council 7566 of the Knights of Columbus is proud to announce our 2021 Scholarship recipients. The Council congratulates Cathleen Diana Papas, Christopher Scott, and Sarah Bunker for their achievement and contributions, awarding each a $1,000.00 scholarship. All three of this year’s recipients highlight an important teaching of St. Francis De Sales: “Be Who You Are and Be That Well”.

FoM 7566, 2020-2021 Knight of the Year: PGK & SK Chris Gallagher

The Family of Man Council recently selected Past Grand Knight and Sir Knight Chris Gallagher as Knight of the Year for the 2020-2021 Fraternal Year.

No other Knight did more to maintain the viability of the Family of Man Council during the COVID pandemic than Chris. He hosted a backyard social at his home that enabled many of our Brother Knights to meet in person for the first time in many months.

April 2021 Family of the Month - The Ed Walsh Family

Ed Walsh and Family

Ed Walsh has been a parishioner at Saint John Neumann for 15 years. He joined his college council of Knights at William & Mary in 1999 and transferred into the Family of Man Council upon moving to Reston in 2006. We want to recognize Ed for preparing a superb St. Patrick’s feast for our Council’s March social. It provided his Brothers with what has been a rare opportunity to share good food and good company over the last year.
