Hornell Knights of Columbus Council 243, along with the Ladies of Columbus, recently provided Steuben County Rural Ministry with four boxes of coats through the Knights’ Coats for Kids program. This initiative has provided approximately 500,000 coats for youths across North America since it was begun in 2009.

The Steuben rural ministry is located at 34 W. Main St. in Canisteo, in the former St. Joachim Church where it moved after the church closed in 2005. A program of Catholic Charities of Steuben, the ministry has been led for many years by Sister Susan Cain, RSM.
