Good people doing good things: The Ryan Club, a Catholic club in the Norfolk area that has been supporting charitable causes in the Tidewater area since 1950, continued its legacy of generosity by donating $9,000 — $1,000 to each of the Catholic schools in Norfolk, Virginia Beach and Portsmouth — from the Ryan Club Charitable Trust Fund. The money will help schools provide students with necessities that their parents might not be able to afford. Founded in 1949, the Ryan Club is named for Msgr. Leo Ryan, the founding pastor of Blessed Sacrament Parish and long-time vicar general of the Diocese of Richmond.
Celebrating with kindness: When Knights of Columbus Council 13170 at St. Gabriel Parish, Richmond, celebrated its 20th anniversary the weekend of June 18-19, its members marked the occasion by providing women with carnations and children with balloons and snacks.
Mission control: Bon Secours has named Scott Opperman as vice president of mission for the Bon Secours Hampton Road market. His focus will be on leading the integration of Bon Secours’ mission and values into that market’s culture, as well as all strategies, operations and decisions.
