About

The 1 Day for the Knights Campaign is our annual day of giving commemorating our founder, St. Francis de Sales’s, Feast Day.   Join us January 21st and 22nd in helping us achieve our philanthropic needs for our Knights of today and tomorrow.  Your gift will have an immediate impact on the lives of our Knights.  The funds raised during this event will be used to provide our young men the experiences and traditions that are synonymous with being a Knight at St. Francis de Sales School.  Since 1955, this school continues to change the lives of boys as it transforms them into men.  Our Knights develop leadership skills that transcend the halls here and give them the ability to make a difference not only in this community but around the world.  

When we say "Once a Knights... always a Knight", we know the traditions that make up St. Francis de Sales School.  Those traditions made us part of the Brotherhood.  Our goal is to ensure that other young men have them same opportunity to have that experience on Bancroft Street.  

St. Francis de Sales... Pray for us!

Helping turn the corner

Thank you to Scott Secrest '95, Lauren DePorre and Fr. Joe Newman '03 for putting together this video to talk about how our students and teachers adjusted to the new norm here at SFS.

Special Thank You to our faculty, staff and parents who have helped our Knights along this road back to Bancroft.

Reverend Race 2021 - Chapter 2

Reverend Run Chapter 2 - With Great Power Comes Lousy Internet

A lot has changed for our Oblate heroes since the last time we left them (well a lot has changed for everyone but that is not where we are going with this). This year the rules had to be altered a little but the Reverend Race is back. This year we have a few special guests and talk of a Fr. Rudi spin-off reality show had started to take shape but never materialized. The rules are the same: 5 Oblates enter the ring, only 1 can be crowned Reverend Race Champion 2021. We did take into account that some of the Big 10 teams only played 7 games but then we realized it had absolutely nothing to do with this. Sit back, enjoy the race and remember only Empire Strikes Back was better than the original.

A conversation with Mr. Don Kober

This is Part 1 of a conversation I had with Mr. Don Kober, Tim Gerken '76, John Hall '02 and Andy Okuley '15.  We talked about what made them Knights and what makes the school so special.  On this call we also talk about what Gerk thought when he found out he was going to be taking over Kober as Head Varsity Baseball Coach.  

The Finale (Part 2) of this conversationis on our Alumni social media accounts (Twitter and FaceBook).  I would like to thank everyone who made this call possible and for everyone who has supported our cause.

Go Knights!
