Please consider joining your Brother Knights at Bull Run Bowl America in Manassas for an evening of fun and fellowship.

This league is open to all Knights of Columbus members in good standing, including their immediate family members (wife, daughters, sons, parents, brothers and sisters).

Dart Knight

Come on out to the George Brent dart night on October 19th at 7:00 PM. The event is open to all Knights and their wives/significant others. The venue is the game room downstairs under the club room. There are 2 dart boards installed and darts will be available for those that don't have their own. Don't worry about how to play darts, the rules are simple and there will be Brother Knights to provide instruction and help with throwing techniques and scoring. The game is simple and fun.

The Knights of Columbus extend an open invitation to the Aquia Field Mass on Saturday, October 27, 2018, in the historic Brent Family Cemetery near St. William of York Catholic Church in Stafford, Virginia. The annual field Mass commemorates all the faithful departed, especially the Brents, the first Catholic settlers in Virginia. We will begin with Mass at 11:30 AM in the Brent Family Cemetery. Blessing of the traditional floral wreath will occur at the Mass.

 

DIRECTIONS: Follow lnterstate 95 to Exit 143-A.

Take U.S. Route 1 north and proceed about one mile, passing St. William of York Church and over Aquia Creek.

Turn right at the Crucifix Memorial onto Telegraph Road.

Proceed one-quarter mile east to the cemetery access road on the right side. The gate will be open and marked with a sign.

 

LUNCHEON: The luncheon will be served in the St. William of York Parish Center after the Mass. The generous support of St. William of York parishioners, the Catholic Woman's Club of Richmond, and the Knights of Columbus and their Ladies will surely make this event special. The Squire Roses will also bring their famous cookies for dessert.

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.
