Come to a presentation to explore the history and meaning of Advent with Peggy McGrail on Sunday December 3rd at 1:30pm, in the McCabe center – under the church. It is a great way to start the holy season and incorporate many traditions of the Church. See flyer.
The service will take place in the church and a reception in the
parish center will follow the service. This is a wonderful way to
joyfully celebrate the season. Invite a friend or neighbor!

Honor a Lifetime of Service of Our Retired Priests
Our priests enrich our lives in many ways: they baptize our children, comfort us in the confessional, witness our marriage vows and hold our loved ones hands as the Lord calls them home. Let’s join together to help provide care and housing for our retired priests so they can live their retirement in dignity.
Archdiocese of Washington priests have selflessly served the faithful and the community to continue Christ’s mission for decades, and in some cases, more than a half century.
Our priests have been there for each of us and our families in providing spiritual support – year in and year out – for our entire lives.
Please join the tens of thousands of the faithful in being there for them to assist in the dignity of their retirement and to honor their lives of service through support of the annual Retired Priests Collection.

Thank you all the members of the Africa Union 55 committee who worked so long and hard on bringing about the glorious day we had last weekend. Their celebration was for all of us. It was an explosion of grace, of the signs of Christ in our midst. It inspires all of us to sing and dance because of the goodness of God. Thank you all who participated in sharing your faith with us. Let’s work together so that we can celebrate more the gifts of our parishioners, wherever they come from, whatever is their tradition, the human glory of Christ.
