7th Annual Vocations Celebration Dinner – January 4th @ 6:30pm

The Knights of Columbus John Carrell Jenkins Council #7771 in Front Royal invites you to be our guest at the seventh annual “Father Fasano Vocations Celebration Dinner”.  It will be held at Rappahannock Cellars (14437 Hume Rd, Huntley, VA) at 6:30pm on Saturday, January 4, 2019

The evening will consist of a social hour, dinner, brief remarks by the seminarians, a guest speaker, and evening prayers.

Tickets are available for purchase after weekend Masses starting December 13th or on-line via Paypal.  A $10 discount is available through December 16th.

In addition to the ticket purchase, please consider making a donation to the fund for vocations.

The purpose of the dinner is to celebrate the “home grown” young men and women from our parish studying for the priesthood and religious life and to increase awareness within the St. John the Baptist community of the importance of vocations.  Please pass information about this event to your family members and friends.

The Knights are excited about making the dinner a truly enjoyable dinner for the parish and our seminarians and young woman in formation.  Please contact Michael Bugin (248-797-1228, michaelbugin@yahoo.com) if you have any questions.

Support the Prison Ministry in Warren County

Approximately 200 men and women incarcerated in the RSW Regional Jail are released every year.  These people need models of Christianity to help them return to the community as worthy citizens.  A few hours of your time could make a permanent difference in their lives.  They need guidance and practical support to obtain basic aspects of life (e.g. clothing, a place to live, work and transportation arranged by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington) as well as mentorship.  If you are interested in learning more, visit the Diocese’s Prison Ministry website or contact Keith Henderson (571-236-2878, henderson.keith01@gmail.com).
