The program director serves two purposes. The first responsibility of the program director is to guide each of the activity directors in planning strong projects each quarter. A good program director leads each activity director in planning a successful activity, acquiring the man-power and resources to get it done, and advertising so that people show up on the day of the event. The second responsibility is to lead the programs portion of the meeting. This means keeping track of where each activity director is in the planning for the next upcoming project and calling on them to report on it or doing so in their place if they are absent. The following are the program areas for which the director is responsible for: Church, Council, Community, Family, Pro-Life, Youth, Bingo, Ravens, Degree Teams, and any seasonal events that fall outside of these areas. If you need to contact the current program director you may send an email to .

One of our two main fundraisers involves running a beer stand at M&T Bank stadium during Ravens football games. During both sweltering hot and blistering cold days, our captains Lee Eder and Mike Georgulas put us through our paces and make sure we have as much fun as our customers have. By the way - free food and drink for working the game. We look forward to seeing you just inside Gate B at Tankard 112!
Our biggest money maker is bingo held on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month in Kilduff Hall. If you're free to help, we're always looking for extra runners, callers and help in the kitchen. If you're just interested in playing, then by all means come on by and have a great time. Our hall sees around 100 people on average and peaks around 200 for special events.
The Ladies Auxiliary is the sister branch of the Father Maurice J. Wolfe council. We aid each other in all of our endeavors and work together to give each others events that little bit of extra pizzazz.
