News & Announcements

Thanks to You, I Left the Country…

 

As many of you know, it was my happy duty to participate in a trip to Ireland and Scotland in April with my wife Lisa and many other Knights of Columbus field agents from around the United States and Canada, in the company of our Supreme Knight Carl Anderson and his wife Dorian, among numerous other dignitaries.

 

This annual trip is a celebration of the accomplishments of field agents who are successful in protecting their brother Knights and families’ finances. Attendance on this trip represents not just the work of your field agent but especially the cooperation and commitment of you, the member families of the Knights of Columbus. Since I have you to thank for this wonderful experience, I would like to share a few highlights.

 

The first three days of our trip were in Dublin, Ireland, where we had the chance to visit Trinity College and view the Book of Kells, have dinner at the Guinness Storehouse, and explore this once-Viking settlement turned-cosmopolitan capital. Our visit followed an unusually harsh winter including rare snow the week before.

 

Perhaps the greatest highlight of the trip was a visit en masse to Crosserlough, County Cavan, to assemble for Mass and presentations at St. Mary's Church, the parish of Patrick McGivney. From this area, both he and Mary Lynch would separately emigrate during the Potato Famine, meet and marry in Connecticut, and build a family in the New World. Patrick died a young father, and no doubt the eldest son Michael, who never saw the land of his parents, kept a place in his heart for the people of Cavan. It was our privilege to return on his and your behalf to thank this community for the young people and faith they sent West in search of new opportunities, blossoming into the Fraternal Society we are today.

 

I sat at lunch later with a Michael J. McGivney and his family, and on our drive back to Dublin we stopped and took pictures at the McGivney family homestead. As a member of the Knights of Columbus this was a special privilege for me that I won't soon forget, and I carried all of your intentions with me.

 

The final four days of our trip brought us to Edinburgh, Scotland, which is known as the Athens of the North. Its classical architecture, “Old” and “New” Towns, royal palaces and castles were breathtaking. Having both Irish and Scottish heritage, I found my loyalties on this trip divided and hope someday to visit both countries for much longer visits and sampling of the local beverages. The final day of our trip brought us to St Andrews where I was fortunate to play a round of golf on the Jubilee Course, one of the most famous links courses in the world.

 

As your field agent, it’s a privilege to serve such a strong, faithful, active, and well-insured council. There’s always more work to do on your behalf, and this experience has redoubled my resolve to ensure that no family goes unserved by the Fraternal Mission of our Founder. Vivat Jesus!

Archaeological Investigation at George Brent's Woodstock

You can download a copy of the archeological report by clicking here.

 

 

Between 1995 and 2002 the Northern Virginia Chapter of the Archaeological Society of Virginia conducted an archeological investigation at the Brent Cemetery Site (also known as Aquia Cemetery or Woodstock) located near the town of Aquia in Stafford County, Virginia.  This project was undertaken at the request of the George Brent Council Knights of Columbus at All Saints Parish and the Holy Trinity Assembly at St. William of York Parish.  The project entailed pedestrian reconnaissance, site mapping, limited remote sensing, systematic Phase I shovel testing and targeted Phase II test unit excavations.  The investigations were designed to assess the National Register eligibility of the historic Brent Cemetery.
