ADULT FORMATION

We begin our new Adult Formation Series, The Mass, next week on the 8th.   This is a 6 week series and will run until Feb. 12th.   Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Barron and be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ.  See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and, most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist.  Order the study book using this link.  https://store.wordonfire.org/collections/the-mass/products/the-mass-study-guide-pre-order

God's Mail

God, Our Father, may everything we do be first-class.  Imprint your own loving zip code upon our hearts so that me may never go astray.  Provide in your gracious Providence special handling for those of us who are fragile and keep us in one piece.  

And when our days draw to a close and we are marked, "Return to Sender," be there to greet us at Heaven's door so that no one there might say "Unknown at this address."  Amen

E-Mail and Texting Scams


Scammers are at it again in an attempt to steal your money. They are impersonating clergy and staff via e-mail and text messages. DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR RUSE. Your clergy and staff will never solicit funds of moneys for personal use. Report any scam attempts to the authorities.

Diocesan Responses to 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 view the list.

Ethics Abuse Hotline Established by Diocese


Bishop Knestout announces the implementation of a hotline to report suspected financial, administrative or human resource misconduct within the Diocese of Richmond.


The hotline is handled through EthicsPoint, an independent, third-party reporting system, to ensure accountability and transparency. This helps to safeguard the resources entrusted to us by the people of our diocese. Reports can be made online or by phone. Employees, volunteers, clergy, parishioners and any other individual wishing to make a report can do so anonymously.


The toll-free number is 844-739-3210 and is offered in multiple languages. To submit a report online, visit the diocesan website, www.richmonddiocese.org, and select “EthicsPoint.”


The hotline number is not a 911 or emergency service number. Individuals should not use this number to report information that is of an immediate threat to life or property.


Additionally, EthicsPoint is NOT intended to receive information about sexual abuse allegations. Abuse allegations should be reported immediately to local law enforcement and the Attorney General’s Clergy Abuse Hotline at 1-833-454-9064.


Additional information including a video message and letter from Bishop Knestout, a list of frequently asked questions and other resources regarding EthicsPoint can be found by visiting the diocesan website.
