NORWALK, Conn. – The continuing relationship between Knights of Columbus St. Matthew Council No. 14360 and Notre Dame Convalescent Home was on display Saturday, April 16, when a group of Brother Knights helped out with projects on the home’s grounds.
As in past years, grounds-keeping work was done, including adding fresh mulch to shrub areas on the outside grounds, power-washing, moving furniture and touch-up painting. It is the beginning of an important capital Improvement plan for the facility on 76 West Rocks Road in Norwalk.
The chief project from the plan is the renovation of the front entranceway. It will be an automatic sliding door system, which will provide better accessibility and safety for the residents.
“Helping Notre Dame is one of the many things that make it so worth being a Knight of Columbus,” said Grand Knight George Ribellino. “Sister Lucie and Sister Francis are always so appreciative of the work we can provide for them.”
Ribellino, Scott Criscuolo, Ribellino’s daughter, Mia, and fellow Knights Tim Horne, Anthony T. Cossuto, Mike Colaluca (who was Grand Knight when the council’s relationship with NDCS started in 2010), Lee Pino and AJ Cossuto volunteered their time.
During a break in the work, the council attended mass – officiated by Father Paul Sankar – with residents of the home.
On Thursday, May 19, Notre Dame Convalescent Home will have a pasta supper sponsored by Knights of Columbus Council No. 14360 at St. Thomas the Apostle church hall on 205 East Ave. The dinner is at 6:30 p.m. and cost is $20 for adults and $15 for kids 10 and under.
Funds will be used for further improvements. For more information on reservations, contact Sister Lucie Monast at 203-847-2885.
Notre Dame Convalescent Homes has been awarded 5 stars, the highest ranking from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. It has been named by US News & World Report as one of the Best Nursing Homes in Connecticut.
