The National March for Life took place on Friday, January 24th. The Virginia Knights of Columbus were asked to provide marshals for this event and the Family of Man Council provided 4% of that effort. Brothers Jim O’Donnell, Bill McInerney, John Moran and Bob Balog took a stand for Life and assisted in crowd control and safety throughout the day as tens of thousands of our fellow citizens, mostly students, came to DC to have their voices heard and Faith seen. SJN parishioners also took part in the March and Brother Bob Abbot and Leo Marier were also there standing up for Life.
The Knights of Columbus are holding our first charity breakfast of the new year on Sunday, January 5, 2020, from 8:30 - 11:30 AM in the Brown-McCarthy Auditorium. Your free-will offering will support Project Rachel, the Catholic Church's ministry to those who have been involved in abortion.
The Family of Man Council was asked by the Fellowship Square Foundation for help in moving personal items belonging to residents of their Reston Hunter Woods assisted living facility. A week was set aside for this project and several of our Knights signed up. WPGK Keith George, SK Loren Biegler and Brother Joe Orrigo from our Council, along with SK Ken Moore from the Elizabeth Bayley Seton Assembly, showed up on December 2nd and accomplished in two days what was estimate would take all week!
