Washington Nationals Baseball Rosaries for Kenya
posted July 21, 2015

To each one of you who donated, God bless you and thank you. I never stop being amazed by people in this council and for that matter Knights of Columbus Virginia wide.

The St. Agnes Sacristan travels on mission every year to Kenya to aid the orphans in the Diocese of Meru. Take a look at her web site www.loveinmeru.com

This year she asked our council to donate Rosaries and Miraculous Medals to help bring the protection of Mary to the Kenyans from the frequent terrorist attacks from Somalia. I asked her how many she would like, she answered "Pray about it. The Holy Spirit will tell you." So I decided to unleash the Knights of Columbus on her!! The council purchased 2,000 Miraculous Medals for a very low price. I then decided to ask Knights of Columbus Edward Douglass White Council 2473, Supreme and Catholics in the Knights of Columbus Virginia State Council to donate Rosaries. Well, the Holy Spirit spoke! We've collected 6,000 Rosaries in addition to the 2,000 medals.

Again, thank you very much for helping this very worthy cause.
Vivat Jesus,
John White Grand Knight

EDW Magnet Support KOVAR with New EDW Decal or Magnet.
posted August 13, 2012

Display your EDW pride as you ride around town with this version of the ubiquitous oval car magnet. Visit the EDW "storefront" at CafePress and purchase one or more. Each item is marked up $5 (above the base costs, i.e., CafePress' cost). All of the markup will be forwarded to KOVAR. If this proves popular and successful in raising a little charity cash, more items will be added. So, be the first to get one!
Getting Involved
posted November 11, 2010

During my tenure as Membership Chairman, I've learned that a too-large percentage of our members fail to get involved for one reason or another. Among those reason, I suspect, are not being sure how and being a little too shy to ask. For the benefit of our "rookies" and "veterans" I've begun to compile a list of different ways to get involved. Some require a committment. Some are laughably easy. All are important to the Council.

If you are looking for a way to get integrated at EDW, please REVIEW THIS LIST. The list is by no means comprehensive -- so if you know of something I've neglected, please let me know and I'll continue to add to it.
