  • Blood Drive. Our next blood drive is at Nativity on August 5th from 7-12. Summertime brings us great challenges in blood and platelet collections. Our challenges are not unique as blood banks across the United States are facing the same blood supply shortages as IBDS. Currently, our inventory is at critical levels. Patients are counting on all of us to help them fight for another hug, another kiss, another birthday. We ask you to please join us in this fight to save local lives by making an appointment today to donate now. No matter your blood type or preferred donation patients need you.

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men's family, fraternal, and service organization, founded to help members remain steadfast in their faith, to promote closer ties of fraternity among members, and to provide for the widows and children of deceased members. Over the last century it has become an organization of over 1.8 million members in the United States and several other countries. The Knights at Nativity belong to the Father Vincent Sikora Council, No. 7992, established in 1982. The Council has over 400 members and is very active. We sponsor activities for:

  • Youth (Boy Scouts, Youth Work Camp, Soccer & Basketball Challenge)

  • And other numerous parish & community support activities.

The Council meetings are held in the Parish Hall at the Church of the Nativity, 6400 Nativity Lane, Burke, VA 22015 on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the Month. We start our meeting the Rosary at 7:15pm followed by the Business Meeting at 7:30pm. Do you want to make a difference as a Catholic Gentleman? Then join the Knights of Columbus!

The Father Sikora Council of the Knights of Columbus has depended often on the few to provide a greater service to the many. Stepping up to assume a level of responsibility for the operation of the Council is not a task to be taken lightly. At the same time, we have quite an honor role of those who have endeavored to serve selflessly. We'd like to share that Honor Roll with you.
