No Room at the Inn Virtual Gala - Friday, December 4 from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m.!
Spurred on by the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Our Annual No Room at the Inn Nativity Exhibit and Gala is going Virtual this year!! What does that mean? It means we will "get together" virtually to have some fun, celebrate the goodness of the incarnation and...help our brothers and sisters experiencing homelessness.
If you haven’t registered yet, do it now (it’s free)! You can access our virtual event by Clicking Here or on the nativity above which will take you to our auction bidding and virtual program, hosted by our partner, School Auction. To participate in the event, click on the nativity above and then click on the Register Now button. By registering, you will receive email and text reminders about the event and receive a bid number to participate in the auction.

Diocese of Richmond
On October 19, 2020, the Diocese of Richmond publicized a summary report providing the findings of the Independent Reconciliation Program. The report, a letter from Bishop Knestout, and other details about the Independent Reconciliation Program can be found here.
Bishop Knestout urges anyone aware of sexual abuse of minors on the part of clergy or staff of our diocese to notify civil authorities, call the Attorney General’s Clergy Abuse Hotline at 1-833-454-9064, and reach out to the Diocesan Victim Assistance Coordinator, Jennifer Sloan at 1-877-887-9603.
The Diocese has also partnered with EthicsPoint to provide a completely confidential platform that allows any employee, parishioner, clergy or volunteer of the diocese to anonymously submit concerns about suspected unethical behavior, misuse of resources or financial misconduct. Reports can be made anonymously and confidentially – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week - online or by calling (844) 739-3210
