St. Bridget’s second annual Stew & Brew Volunteers Needed!

Dear Grouplogo-stew_and_brew Leaders,

St. Bridget’s second annual Stew & Brew is taking place Friday, October 7.

To make this fun and important event successful, we need many hands to help out.  Could you please forward the link below to the Stew & Brew Sign Up Genius to all in your respective groups?

Though the event is from 5pm -10pm, there are different volunteer slots, some starting at 9 am (stirrers of the stew) through the end of the evening (clean up).  All are only one hour slots so feel free to encourage multiple hours of volunteering if anyone is so disposed.  We pulled it off last year with a true skeleton crew but we hope we can have a better crew of helpers this year.

The purpose of this event is to serve as an outreach event to our neighbors and friends in and outside of our parish as well as raising money for Little Sisters, St. Vincent’s and East End Pregnancy Center.

Thank you for passing this info on!



Call to action for the 15 year anniversary of 9/11 – at Cathedral in RVA

To all K of C Fourth Degree First Responders in the Richmond area.

The reason I am reaching out to you all is that as you all know this Sunday, SeptembKNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS CARRY FLAGS AT NATIONAL COLUMBUS MEMORIAL CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONer 11, 2016, is the 15 year anniversary of 9/11.

The Knights of Columbus and the Cathedral are looking to honor the victims, survivors and first responders from that day.  We are hoping to have as one of our guest of honor the family, and one of our own, of one of the victims of that terrible day.

I am hoping that some, all, of you would consider coming to Mass in your uniforms so that w e can not only horror the family but to honor all of you, you all deserve to be honored.

What would be involved:

  • you would be to attend the 11 o’clock Mass
  • arrive no later then 1045 in uniform if possible
  • You will enter the Mass with the Entrance Procession to reserve seats for you and your families in front of the Church
  • Mass will happen as normal
  • After Mass you and your families will exit behind Monsignor to form a reception line to greet the Parishioners as they exit the church

After Mass we will be having a small reception, cake and lemonade, weather permitting, in the Plaza outside the Cathedral.

Of course I will try to honor any special request you may have. I will be in back of the church on Sunday to guide and answer any questions.  You can reach out to me either by phone or email any time.

P lease let me know later then noon on Saturday if you will attend and how many in your group so I can makes sure we reserve enough pews.

Thank you again,

John Dougherty
