The Great Race is our annual 5K-race and parish family fun night. This fundraising event brings hundreds of parishioners together every June. The 5K-race/walk and social event is open to the parishioners of St. Greg’s, the running community, and the community at large. An open-air party with great music, food and fun on the parish grounds follows the race. Race attendance has grown to over 1,200 participants; several hundred more attend the party each year.

Knights of Columbus, St. Gregory’s Council #14687

Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie: it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church while enhancing your own Faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Come see just what we are all about, and take the first steps to enhance your personal faith life.

Meetings are the first Monday of each month, excluding holidays.

Membership: Men interested in becoming a member of the Knights of Columbus are invited to attend any meeting.

Check out our Knights of Columbus Ministry website: stgregoryknights.org

Men’s Golf League

The St. Greg's Men’s Golf League meets once a week from May through August at Rothland Golf Course in Akron, NY followed by fellowship time and prizes for closest to the pin, longest drive, etc. at the Rothland Clubhouse. Golfers can play with fellow parishioners in a recreational but competitive format. The League’s goals are sportsmanship, friendship, and the spirit of fair play. The League provides a $500 annual scholarship in honor of deceased League members to St. Gregory the Great School, to help a family in need.

Senior Citizen's Organization

The St. Gregory Senior Citizens ministry provides its members with activities that help them enjoy a fuller life in our Church community. Its many activities and projects provide opportunities for spiritual growth, travel, and entertainment. The organization has grown to be one of the largest and most active ministries within our parish. Monthly meetings feature a short business meeting followed by a speaker on a topic of interest, or a form of entertainment. Refreshments and social time end the day’s activities. The ministry also hosts special parties, a Christmas luncheon, a summer picnic, and a bowling league. At the heart of our social activities, our Travel Club offers day trips, and occasionally longer excursions, to a variety of events and locations. Perhaps the best benefit of being a member of this ministry is the opportunity to meet new people, participate in diversified conversations, and broaden your social community.
