Grand Knight Message

Grand Knight

My Brother Knights,

As the holiday season approaches, we all need to take time to reflect on all the good gifts God has provided each of us. Please try to spend some time with family, friends, and Brother Knights and strive to live out the holiday spirit this season. Keeping in mind that the first principle of our Order is Charity, we should look for opportunities to help those that may not have as much to make this time of year more enjoyable. Our Council will offer some ways to do this over the next couple of months. On Saturday November 22nd we will be holding our annual Elderly Healing Mass and Thanksgiving Luncheon. The residents of the local retirement homes and assisted living facilities around Manassas eagerly look forward to this every year so please consider donating your time to support this worthy event. In December we will once again support the Un-Trim-A-Tree Project. This project provides Christmas gifts to over 800 children and 270 families in the Manassas and Manassas Park areas. You help is needed to sort and distribute the gifts. Please contact Jeff Vallimont for more information.

Remember that all of the great charitable work our Council does throughout the year is due in large part to the success of our Bingo Program. To all those who so graciously donate their time to this program I offer you a huge “THANK YOU!” I’ve notice however, that the number of Brother Knights on some teams is dwindling and could use your support. If you have not yet had the opportunity to help out with the Bingo Program please consider volunteering a few hours one day a month. Please contact me or our Worthy Chancellor if you would like more information on how you can get involved.

Vivat Jesus,

Milt Shomo
Grand Knight

DGK Message


This month of November we pause and remember those who have left us from this life to be in heaven with God our Father. The Deceased members mass gives us this opportunity to reflect on those men and women of George Brent Council who volunteered their time and energy to our council. Many of these men and women help created the traditions that we as George Brent Council still use today for a better tomorrow. Let us then take the opportunity to celebrate mass as a family in the chapel on November 1st, 2014 at 4:00pm. After the mass, there will be a dinner afterwards in the hall.

What you may ask is a good example of giving back to our community? That would be giving the gift of life through our Blood Drive on November 15th. To sign up for this event, please contact Colin Myers at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Mark on your calendars the date of November 22nd, 2014. This event is the Elderly Thanksgiving Luncheon. This holds a special place in my heart as it shows the examples of what Charity and Fraternity really means in George Brent Council.
