Blood Drive

Saturday May 340, 2020 Worthy Deputy Grand Knight-elect John Moran coordinated another successful American Red Cross blood drive. He sought special permission from the St. John Neumann Pastor Fr. Joe Brennan for use of the Brown-McCarthy Auditorium. The Red Cross has had to cancel so many drives and are in desperate need. Its mobile units won't allow for social distancing. Fr. Joe quickly agreed and put Brother John in touch with the amazing SJN facilities crew. Because so many drives had been canceled appointments filled quickly.

Knights Salute our Priests

On April 21, 2020, members of the Family of Man Council, their family members, and other parishioners of St John Neumann Parish in Reston, VA, drove by the parish rectory to salute our parish priests. Since the start of the stay-at-home order due to the novel Coronavirus (COVAD-19) our priests have not been able to minister directly to their parishioners.

Mardi Gras 2020

The Family of Man Council again took part in the SJN Mardi Gras Dinner on February 25th. Responsible for cooking, the Knights started preparing on Sunday and Monday afternoons under Chef/Brother Bob Andres’ able direction. Final preparations and cooking were done on Tuesday while other parish volunteers took care of decorating, serving and clean-up. Over 300 patrons were served and all proceeds went to funding the Youths Group's summer work camp. Great job, Brothers!
