NORWALK, Conn. -- St. Matthew Council No. 14360 of the Knights of Columbus recently hosted its second annual family Communion Breakfast in the St. Matthew Church Masterpool Great Room.
Besides the food provided by Zody’s 19th Hole in Stamford for the more than 180 guests, the guest speaker delivered some treats of her own.
Sister Lucie Monast of Notre Dame Convalescent Home in Norwalk delivered a talk on respect and family. Sister Lucie talked about faith and respect within the family and how it needs to be revitalized in families today, according to a press release.
The council and Monast combined to work on a project to renovate the chapel in the home’s convent, according to a press release. Notre Dame Convalescent Homes was opened in Norwalk on March 24, 1952, as an extended care facility. The Convent House and Mother Kevin Pavilion were used by the Sisters of St. Thomas of Villanova to care for needy elderly people in the area.
"I enjoyed and had fun doing the presentation, and I praise the Lord for all the smiles that I witness that morning," Monast said in a press release.
“Our Communion breakfast brought together faith, family, youth and community - a perfect day for our St Matthews parish family,” said committee chairman Ron Miller in a press release.
