"Calvary" Adult Formation Movie
Our first movie of the Adult Formation Summer Series is "Calvary". This is a gritty movie based in modern-day Ireland which addresses many of the challenges facing the Catholic Church and the priesthood in today's world.
This is NOT a G-Rated "feel good" movie and it addresses some very mature topic areas worthy of discussion. Parents are asked to use discretion on bringing children.
Our Sumer Series begins July 17. Daily Mass is canceled that evening and the summer series session begins promptly at 6:00pm with the movie followed by discussion.

Ethics Abuse Hotline Established by Diocese
Bishop Barry C. Knestout announces the implementation of a hotline that will be used to report concerns of suspected financial, administrative or human resource misconduct within the Diocese of Richmond.
The hotline will be handled by an independent, third-party reporting system, EthicsPoint, to ensure accountability and transparency with reporting procedures. The use of such a hotline is another safeguard to protect 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 report can do so anonymously, if they wish.
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.
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, Jennifer Sloan at 1-877-887-9603.

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 see the complete list.
