Hello Brother Knights,
Will you help this month with KOVAR? You can have an impact on the lives of Virginians with intellectual disabilities. This is a Knights charity that helps provide training and assistance.
We need volunteers for doing collections after the Masses on the weekend of March 25-26. We will also spend part of a Saturday, soon, at a local grocery store, giving away Tootsie Rolls.
Please go to the Web site, www.kovarva.org , and please ‘like’ KOVAR on Facebook.
Thank you for helping with this very important cause.
Please consider supporting the Saint Francis Home event, Taste of Monte Carlo, on May 6. We need corporate sponsors, event guests, and a dozen volunteers from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Please review the attached flyers. You can purchase tickets on our web site, www.SaintFrancisHome.com, and let me know if you wish to help.
Today, we see throughout parts of the Middle East, Africa and Asia the brutal persecution, torture and killing of Christians.
This month, the Knights of Columbus is urging its members and other people of faith to pray a Novena of Grace and Solidarity for Christians suffering persecution. The novena is based on a prayer in honor of St. Francis Xavier by Italian Father Marcello Mastrilli, a missionary to Japan who was martyred for the faith.
Please join in praying this Novena of Grace and Solidarity, beginning on Sunday, March 12, and concluding on Monday, March 20. The novena may also be prayed any time throughout the year.
The novena prayer can be found here.
