Cluster Youth in Action!

Whether it's attending DYC, collecting goods for the homeless, serving at a Fat Tuesday dinner, celebrating Mardi Gras, playing marshmallow dodgeball, or taking the "cookie challenge", our Cluster Youth know how to have fun while drawing closer to God.

E-Mail Scams Targeting Parishioners

Once again, e-mail scams are targeting our parishioners to solicit money, funds, or other financial support. These e-mails may appear to come from Father Tony or members of the staff, but they are FAKE. The Cluster Parishes' clergy, staff and volunteers will NEVER ask for private, personal financial support from a parishioner or bulletin advertiser.

As previously posted by the diocese:

“Cybercrime is hitting dioceses nationwide. If/when you receive an email that shows the parish’s pastor or a parish priest as the sender requesting you to purchase a gift card, rest assured it is a scam. Parishioners can and should contact the parish to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request received through email. All cybercrime should be reported to the FBI at It is up to the victim of cyber-crimes to file complaints.”

Ongoing Efforts in the Wake of the Clergy Sex Abuse Scandal

Bishop Knestout encourages 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.  

Click here for additional information on how to report abuse and harassment.

Bishop Knestout has released the names of clergy in the Diocese of Richmond that have a credible and substantiated allegation of sexual abuse of a minor. The list also includes clergy from other dioceses and religious communities who served in the Diocese. Click here to see the complete list.
