Grand Knights Message

Posted by: GK Shawn Hutchings
  • As expected, all council meetings and gatherings have been cancelled or suspended until further nontice.
  • Business meetings will be conducted via online using Zoom.
  • Pray that this pandemic is resolved soon.

    Exemplifications will be "in person" if possible on a quarterly basis. Details will be posted as they become available.

    Congratulations to PGK/PFN Manny Ramos for being selected as the Virginia District Knight of the Year.

    Following his recent beatification, Fr. McGivney should now be refered to as "Blessed Fr. McGivney".

    Brother Pat Mayette has been coordinating our continued service to support the Poor Clairs in Hampton. He is seeking help to ensure that these servants of Christ have a blessed Christmas. Pat would like to do "something" to celebrate the birth of our Lord with that group. He is open for suggestions and - of course volunteers.

    I pray for you and your family?s continued safety and health. I pray that these times of social distancing, while challenging, draw you ever closer to our Risen Lord, Jesus Christ. I pray that the longing in our hearts will grow deeper for the gift of the Eucharist that will be most profoundly experienced when we are once again able to receive in communion with each other and the parish as a whole, hopefully soon. And last I pray that you and yours, may remain ever faithful and continually safe over the days and weeks ahead.

    God Bless & Godspeed my Brothers,
    Fraternally,

    Shawn Hutchings
    Grand Knight, Council 13467
