Birmingham campus ministry to benefit greatly from Knights donation
Billy Pickard, Grand Knight for the Knights of Columbus Council 635, presents Father Bryan Jerabek, pastor and rector of the Cathedral of St. Paul, with a check for $15,000 to support the diocesan campus ministry program for students attending UAB, Samford, and Birmingham Southern. This donation specifically contributes towards the salary of the campus minister. As part of its mission of charity, Council 635, the oldest Knights of Columbus Council in the State of Alabama based at St. Stephen the Martyr Catholic Chapel, provides both financial and non-financial support to the diocesan Catholic campus ministry program. Council 635 has been providing support to campus ministry since 2015 and has contributed over $175,000 towards the program.
