In the weeks before Easter, the Knights of Columbus organized a food drive called '40 Cans For Lent'.  Parishioners at St Francis Xavier Church in Tottenham, St. James' Church in Colgan and St. Mary's Church in Achill generously contributed over 230 lbs of groceries that has been donated to the Our Town Food Bank in Tottenham.   

"The Food Bank relies completely on donations and the congregations in our local Catholic churches have been terrific in their response", says Nigel Richards, Grand Knight of this Knights of Columbus Council.
