Support the Charity Trust Fund

While our community struggles with the challenge of the COVID-19 situation, many of our fellow parishioners are experiencing financial hardships.  The Knights of Columbus in Front Royal will provide assistance through our Charity Trust Fund and the Virginia Council’s charity (VKCCI) to identify and address the most critical needs.  Please support the Council’s efforts and Donate to the Charity Trust Fund.  Funds that exceed the needs will be donated to the Parish’s Social Outreach program.  Please contact Michael Turner (540-660-1406, mtcinc1@cs.com) to suggest parishioners who need assistance or for any questions.

Stop the Bleed Training

The Council is offering “Stop the Bleed” training.  Contact Leo Carling (540-631-7555, LeoCarling4@gmail.com) with any questions and to be notified of the next class date / time.

The Stop the Bleed program is a Department of Homeland Security effort to to cultivate grassroots efforts that encourage bystanders to become trained, equipped, and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professional help arrives.

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).

Upcoming Events

Mark your calendar and reach out to the Council’s POC to offer your assistance.  No POC? If you’re called to do so, please step up.
