With over 500 students in over 40 classes, the backbone of our program is YOU: volunteer adults and confirmed teens who teach and assist in our classes and help with security and safety during our class sessions. Training in classroom management, cool Catholic resources to enrich your lessons, and lesson planning, among other topics, will be provided over the summer and on a continuous basis to all our volunteers. All adult volunteers must be compliant with the child protection policies of the diocese, and all teen volunteers must be confirmed. If you have questions about volunteering, call Lynn Jones, Director of Religious Education, at 703-451-8576, ext 136
As summer vacations come to an end, please consider those in our diocese who are struggling with food insecurity. Almost a quarter of a million people in the Arlington diocese doesn’t know where their next meal is coming from. Our next St. Lucy Food Drive is the weekend of August 26–27. Help stock the warehouse with needed items so that they may be distributed to those most in need. Blue bags with the list of most needed items will be distributed after Masses this weekend. Donations will be collected prior to all Masses next weekend. If the St. Lucy Food Drive Project is a ministry that you would like to be more involved in, or if you have questions about the August 26–27 drive, please contact Nancy Hoskins, firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-343-0682
