Belfield Knights of Columbus Hosts Lenten Dinner for Ukraine
BELFIELD, ND — Ukraine may be thousands of miles from North Dakota, but there are plenty in the state with ties to the country.
That’s why the Belfield Knights of Columbus wanted to do something to help those affected by war.
Inside the St. Bernard Parish Center in Belfield, people prepare for a party on Friday.
“The cooler stores most of the tilapia,” Grand Knight Tony Krebs said.
The Belfield Knights of Columbus is hosting a Lenten dinner to raise money for the people of Ukraine.
Customers can donate for free and choose from tilapia, shrimp and beef tacos.
“I’m proud to be a part of it, I’m proud to be here and to ask you to help their cause,” Krebs said.
Krebs said that since it is the Feast of the Annunciation, Catholics can eat meat on Fridays during Lent.
He said the money raised will go to the Ukrainian Solidarity Fund.
It’s a cause many people in the region care about with generations of Ukrainian parents.
“It’s where they come from and it’s a big influence on them and so we have to as a community and as people support them,” Krebs said.
Dinner is from 5-7 p.m. and they hope this local effort will go a long way in helping the people of Ukraine.
The Catholic Girls will also hold a bake sale there to raise funds for Ukraine.
