Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

Dr. Brant Pitre uses the Hebrew Scriptures and Jewish tradition to frame the actions of Jesus at the Last Supper, and to provide a fresh look at the heart of Catholic practice — the Eucharist.

Catholic Scouting Groups Pray for Persecuted Christian Children

Youth representing various Catholic scouting groups in the Diocese of Richmond gathered to pray on Tuesday evening, October 7th, feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, also known as Our Lady of Victory at the Battle of Lepanto.  At this famous battle, Our Lady appeared and interceded for the Christians from being slaughtered and defeated in 1571.  The youth participated in children's adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, the rosary and benediction which were offered by Father Robert Novokowsky, FSSP at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Richmond.

The parish Educational Guild recently took a guided tour of the Richmond Cathedral of the Sacred Heart.  The children were taught about the architecture and history of our beautiful cathedral, and were able to see up close the various statues, side altars, stations of the cross, and other sacred furnishings of the church.

The tour finished with a visit to the cathedral crypt, where four bishops of Richmond are buried, and where there is a very informative and interesting museum,
