Gentlemen Knights,

 Please see below regarding a special request from Christine Homam (parishioner) and Virginia Blood Services. As we sponsor the blood drive at St Bridget, I trust you will assist them if you are able. Please contact me with any questions.

Subject: Blood Donations Needed Through Thanksgiving Weekend


Will you send out a message to all the that VBS really needs  help with our donor centers through the holidays.

Could you please spread the word to everyone that they can come to our center at 2825 Emerywood Parkway (right near Glenside Ave and Broad St).

If they use the code for St. Bridget it will credit to the drive we just had (6104).  They can call to make an appointment or just walk-in.  Even if someone donated at your blood drive this month they can donate platelets if it has been at least 7 days.

Please help us keep the blood supply healthy over the Thanksgiving weekend! Thank you for all you do to help save lives and support the community!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Week of Awareness for Persecuted Christians

Pilgramage to DC

Dear Brother Knight,

 The Saint John Paul II National Shrine is honored to participate in a Week of Awareness for Persecuted Christians which will take place from November 26 – December 2.

 As part of this special week, we invite you to join us on the evening of November 28 at 6:00 p.m. for a special Mass that will be celebrated for the victims of the genocide being perpetrated by ISIS.  The liturgy will be celebrated by the Most Reverend Bashar Warda, the Chaldean Archbishop of Erbil, Iraq, in the language of Christ and according to the rite of the Chaldean Catholic Church.

 We invite all the faithful to participate in this very special liturgy.  A light reception will follow.
