Monthly Council Member Meeting on Monday 11/11/19

Good evening, Brothers.

Just a reminder that this Monday evening, November 11th, our Council is partnering with the Abbate Agency to host an OPEN HOUSE for couples of our Parish.  The event will take place in the Church Hall, and we hope you and your spouse or significant other will join us for the festivities.  Light refreshments and drinks will be served beginning at 6pm, and the presentation will begin at 6:30pm.

A few important items specific to the event:

  • We will not have our Monthly Council Member Meeting on Monday night, 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.
  • The presentation will include a brief overview of our Council, the Knights of Columbus, and the fraternal benefits the Abbate Agency can offer our Knights’ families and our parishioners.
  • Please feel free to invite others as well!  Earlier this week, St. Bridget Parish families received an e-mail blast referencing the Open House.  Please feel free to forward this e-mail or verbally invite other potential Knights and their spouses to the event as well.
  • To RSVP to the Open House, simply call 804-729-6899 or email AbbateAgencyMail3@kofc.org

If you have any questions specific to the event, please don’t hesitate to call me directly at 804-240-9859.  Thanks, all, and have a great weekend.

Vivat Jesus!

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.

From left; Amanda Keller, Carey Leahey, Bart Leahey, Augie Keller.

 

Our St Bridget Catholic Church Knights of Columbus helped volunteer at the annual St Francis Home Blue Crab Festival last week at Tredegar. Brother Knights Augie Keller, his wife Amanda, and Bart Leahey, his wife Carey, were just a few of the members of Council 5476 that spent time helping at this event. Bruce Slough mentioned that this event continues to grow each year, and that they set another record this year!

Congratulations and thank you to all participants and volunteers. Look for more details about the success of this day!

Council 5476 Launches new Gmail Account

090519      Good morning, Brothers of Council 5476!

Earlier this week, Ron Campbell and I sat down together and set up a new Google account for our Council.  This account will streamline our ability to distribute Council-wide e-mails to our Members, update/share documents, and manage a Council-specific calendar.

Please note that I’m sending this from our new Council 5476 e-mail address (knightsof5476@gmail.com) that we’ll use for all communications with Council members and the State and Supreme offices.  If you have any Knights-specific questions for Ron or me, please feel free to use this e-mail address, as we check it daily.

We appreciate your support of this work-in-progress and welcome your thoughts and feedback as we expand usage of the account to manage our Council’s day-to-day operations.

Vivat Jesus!
