Father William P. Hackett Council #7324  
Monthly Meeting: 2nd Tuesday of the month, 7 pm in the Parish Center 

Our council was established in 1979 and currently has 33 members. We support a variety of church, community and state charities, by raising funds through dinners and raffles. For students attending college, we offer the John Murphy Sr. Achievement Award to children or grandchildren of members; we support a seminarian through the RSVP program; and make annual donations to Black River Good Neighbors, Heartbeet, Camp Ta Kum Ta, and Camp Thorpe. We also sponsor the Soccer Challenge and a Free Throw Contest for the local youth. This past year we established our Remembrance Project, offering our condolences nationwide to Emergency workers who have died in the line of duty. Our members volunteer in a variety of church and community organizations. Nationally the organization offers an extensive life insurance plan. Membership is open to all Catholic men, 18 years and older.
