Padre Pio 4th Degree Assembly #2718 is a very active organization   This Assembly runs several fundraisers each year in order to raise money to support a variety of charities. We have made donations to charities such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Guide Dog Foundation, Birth Right, and many more organizations. Fundraisers include the Annual Oktoberfest Dinner, the Spring Social, the Annual Golf Outing, and Knight At The Races. An Annual Christmas Party is held each year and so is our Annual Memorial Mass, and Installation of Officers ceremony. A testimonial dinner is held for every outgoing Faithful Navigator. One of the highlights of each year is the Annual 4th Degree Exemplification which is a ceremony where 3rd Degree Knights become 4th Degree Sir Knights. This exemplification is usually followed by a Mass and a marvelous dinner party. Meetings are held once each month at the Memorare Knights of Columbus Council Hall, Jackson Avenue in Seaford, New York.
