Annual Parish Lenten Fish Fry March 24th

St Bridget annual fish fry logoFellow Parishioner and Fish Fry Volunteer,


Our Annual Parish Lenten Fish Fry is fast approaching – just about a month away on March 24th, 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm.


I am writing to ask again for your help at the Fish Fry by volunteering for one shift during the event.  This will leave ample time in the evening to enjoy a great fish dinner and the fellowship of your friends and pew-mates!


Many of you have volunteered for the “Fry” before and enjoyed it.  I hope you will assist this year, too!  Please ask your spouse to help, too!


For those of you that will be serving for the first time, you will have a lot of fun, you will provide service to your fellow parishioners, and you will help make the evening a grand success!  And, Monsignor WANTS YOU TO HELP!  Special indulgences and dispensations to all!  J



Shown below is a table of volunteer spots, and times needed.

  • Please volunteer for any area in which you are interested!
  • Folks shown in green means they are confirmed for their spot.
  • For folks that volunteered last year, I left your names in the spots where you volunteered. If you want to serve there again, just let me know, and I’ll code it green.  If you want to help somewhere else, just let me know.
  • If you are unable to help, just let me know and I will take you off the sheet.

Thank you for helping in any area at the Fish Fry!  I look forward to hearing back from you!

Fourth Degree Announcement – Color Corps


Greetings Worthy Sir Knights.

Have you ever thought about joining the Color Corps?  Now is the time!  Your Color Corps needs you

The Richmond Assembly, #1165, has a long tradition of exemplary service to the community, especially through the Color Corps.  As the Color Corps Commander, I am honored and privileged to continue that tradition.  However, I cannot do this without you!  We need trained Sir Knights who are willing to serve.

I recognize that everyone’s schedule is busy.  No Sir Knight is expected to participate at every event – we just ask that you serve when you can.  Will you join me please?  To me, there is no greater honor than to be present for the final mass of a brother knight.

To be a trained Color Corps member, you need four things:

  1. To attend a couple hours training session to be certified.
  2. Have the specified tuxedo.
  3. Have color corps regalia, but you do not need to purchase it. The Assembly has regalia to lend to its participating members.
  4. The time to devote to a few events as your schedule permits.

Thank you for your time and consideration of becoming a certified member of the Richmond Assembly Color Corps.

Please give me a call.


Edward S. Whitlock, III
