A Message from the Bishop
One of the very important ministries of our Cluster is the out reach for two schools in Haiti. Quartley the cluster sends money to Haiti to pay salaries for both schools. This is a vital outreach to these very poor schools. The Cluster account for this ministry is very low. Please consder being generous. You are free to give to this ministry at any time.
God bless you all for you generosity.
Letter from the Bishop to the Faithful

Exciting News! The cluster will be doing a 33 day consecration to Saint Joseph beginning February 16th. Each day the scripture, reflection and prayer will be posted on the Facebook group (Cluster Parishes of Portsmouth and Chesapeake Offical Group) or you can download the entire consecration right here: https://www.unleashthegospel.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/33-Days-of-Prayers-and-Daily-Challenge_ENGLISH.pdf

Great News!! We are now using Flock Notes to better communicate with our parishioners. If you haven't received a flock note it's because we don't have a good email for you. Please send an email to [email protected] with the email you read most often. If you are a new parishioner, please register with a good email and phone number.
This is just a freiendly reminder as it has become more and more frequent that people are receiving fake emails requesting money, gift cards, etc. from someone pretending to be a person that they know. Unfortunately, many of these emails tend to come in the form of a Gmail account pretending to be the bishop or our pastor. While, the Diocesean I.T. department has zero control over which email accounts are created through Google, it's important to identify these fake email accounts, and remember that the Bishop or anyone at the Cluster will NOT handle business thorugh an email address that is not part of the Richmond Diocese domain @richmonddicosese.org or clusterparishes.com.
These scams continue to be perpetuated because they continue to work. We ask that you do not reply to such emails, click on the lins within those emails or download content in them. If you receive help requests that you think are legitimate, verify that the person is legitimate by calling them directly on another known valid number. Don't ask the emailer for information or a call. Find an offline mehtod of correspondence that you and that person have used in the past to talk with each other.
Annual Diocesean Appeal
Have you ever turned around to someone at home and said, "What?" Only to have the say, "I didn't say anything." Most of the time we just shrug that off, right? Can you imagine Samuel sleeping in his room? Three times he heard someone calling him. Finally, it downed on him. God was calling him! As we near the beginning of the Annual Diocesean Appeal, take some time to be still, to be quiet and list to the Lord. Listen to what He is saying and how you will uspport the Annual Diocesean Appeal this year.
Youth Group Students:
Come Join us for a night of faith and fellowship! All middle and high school students are invited to attend Youth Group on Sundays from 5:30 - 6:30. Due to Covid we are virtually meeting through Zoom. Please contact Madre Collins for more inforamtion [email protected] or call her at 757-484-7335
Currently we have been using a Facebook Group called "Cluster Parishes of Portsmouth and Chesapeake Official Group". We will be moving over to using a Facebook page (Cluster Parishes of Portsmouth and Chesapeake). This allows us to be more transparent. You don't have to join, you just have to like and follow the group to get updates. Otherwise you can just go look at the page without any other action. We will be live streaming masses from the Page. I will update on the group where to go but for anyone, you can go to the page and see what is going on. I hope this helps. Just trying to survive the IT learning curve. Theresa
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 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.
Diocesan Responses to the Clergy Sex Abuse Scandal

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 to view the list.
