Good morning, Brothers!  I hope you and your families had a nice weekend.

Just a final reminder that our Council OPEN HOUSE is scheduled for this evening at 6:30pm in the Church Hall.  Your spouse or significant other are welcome to join us for the festivities, and we’ll be there early with light refreshments and drinks available beginning at 6pm. The presentation will begin at 6:30pm.

Please note that we will not have our Monthly Council Member Meeting tonight, so please take that time to join us at the Open House!  The presentation should be complete by 7:30pm or shortly thereafter, so we should be done earlier than our normal Council Meetings.

To RSVP to the event, simply call 804-729-6899 or email AbbateAgencyMail3@kofc.org.  You can also simply come to the event and sign-up for attending at the door.

Thank you very much for all that you do in support of the Knights, the St. Bridget Parish, and our local community!

Fraternally,

Bart Leahey, Grand Knight

PRC of Richmond Annual Gala 2019

Greetings Brothers,

 

 

Our Council has worked diligently for the Pregnancy Resource Center of Metro Richmond over the last year to raise funds for new ultrasound machines. We are nearing the finish line for this initiative as we anticipate the funds from the National KofC organization to arrive within the week.

Annually the PRC hosts a very nice dinner to celebrate their mission and their successes, to share their direction for the future, and to reach out to the community for its support. We are all invited and I hope that you will plan to attend along with your spouse. Ann and I are hosting a table, and would love to have you join us for the evening. It would be wonderful to have several tables in attendance representing Council 5476! Monsignor Carr plans to attend and will offer the invocation.

Please see the flyer below with the specifics; additional information from the PRC is located below the flyer. Please let me know if you will attend, and you may use this link to register.

Thank you for your partnership and support for the ministry of the PRC. Recently, we opened our new medical satellite in South Richmond in an under-served area of Richmond where the need for our services is great.  In addition to the 1,100 clients PRC has the privilege of serving annually in our Willow Lawn Office, we are thrilled to be able to expand our reach and share the message of life and the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with many more in South Richmond.

We will be sharing more about this new expansion and vision during our Annual Gala on Thursday, November 21, 2019.  PRC’s Annual Gala is a wonderful time to help church members connect with a Christ centered life affirming approach.  Along with a lovely dinner, beautiful music and hearing about exciting testimonies and plans for PRC, you will not want to miss our keynote Jeff Kemp who is a former NFL quarterback, Founder of Stronger Families, and now Vice President of Family Life.  His passion for building God-centered, vibrant marriages and families is motivating and inspiring!

We are pleased that members of the St. Bridget Knights of Columbus will be attending our Annual Gala. We thank you in advance and we are grateful for your generous partnership.

You will be joined by a room filled with 600 life-affirming partners!

Below is a link to register for the Annual Gala.  There is no charge to attend the Gala, but there will be an opportunity to financially partner with the PRC at the end of the evening.  If you have any questions, please call Lisa Kyle at the PRC at 804-673-4153.
