Holiday Theme Metro Band Concert

Our annual Christmas festivity will be held at the main hall on Saturday,
December 4th. Starting time is scheduled for 7:00 PM and should end
around 9:00 PM. The admission charge will be canned goods for our
food pantry or a donation to Kovar. Unfortunately, this year there will
be no dinner but coffee, punch, and light snacks will be available. After
the activity the bar will be open to purchase drinks. The Band always
puts on a beautiful performance and hopefully you and your family will
attend.

Keep Christ In Christmas

The yearly initiative starts with the the weekend of Advent and
continues to Christmas. Tables will be set up in the back of Church with
Christmas cards, pins, roseries, and other religious paraphernalia for sale.
They will be offered after Mass on the weekends of November 27-28 and
December 11-12. All proceeds will go to Kovar. Also, a family Rosary will be
held at St. Michaels Park on December 19 after 11am Mass. Member support
would be very helpful.

Council Christmas Party

Our seasonal event is back up for this year and scheduled for Friday,
December 10 at the bar. Starting time is about 6:30 pm to 7:00pm
and ends ” when it ends”. Ham and turkey will be provided but all other
side dishes will be potluck. So, if attending please bring something tasty
to share. The bar will be open for purchases and it is also ok to B.Y.O.B.
However, if bringing your own please consume only in the gathering area. It
is a great opportunity for all of us to celebrate the holidays in the comradeship
which we are part of. Hope to see your there!

Messages From The Virginia State Council

From The Grand Knight:
Anyone interested? We need 3 to represent us. , J.P.

From Daniel Doyle:
Worthies,
Please see below. This is the request from the State Deputy to support the National
March for Life. It is being sent out much earlier than I remember from previous years,
I suspect that they are trying to line things up as soon as possible. I would ask that
you spread the word and encourage your membership to consider enlisting to serve
as a Marshal for the March.
The National March for Life is the single largest human rights event in the world. Each
year hundreds of thousands of people participate in the March to show their support
for the right to life. As Knights, we should do so also. Support for life is a fundamental
duty for us. Even if you are not going to be a Marshal, you should be attending the
March as a participant. It’s our obligation. Let’s do it.
Thanks, Dan

From: The Virginia State Deputy
Worthy District Deputies and Grand Knights,
Plans for the March For Life 2022 are being finalized and our support is needed to make
it a success. The goal is for each of our Councils to enlist at least three volunteers to
help marshal the March. Having enough marshals is important to having a safe event.
For decades Virginia Knights have stepped up to provide first aid, clean up, marshalling,
and keeping marchers from engaging with counter protesters.
Please take a minute to sign up using this link to the Sign Up Genius page.

Once signed on, Thom Harrington and I will know you are coming.
The March For Life will take place on Friday, January 21, 2022. You will note that the
starting location will be as before, the National Mall at 12th Street (just off the
Smithsonian-National Mall Metro Station). The same earlier start time is to meet at
8:30 AM at the large recreation vehicle. I look forward to seeing you there!

Respectfully,
Mark Janda
