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
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults begins September 11, and we welcome all who are interested in becoming Catholic. Please get in touch with the parish office for more information.
All High Schoolers and their families are invited to join us Saturday after the 5pm Mass to our High School Family Barbeque in the gym. Hope to see you there!
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. Help stock the warehouse with needed items so that they may be distributed to those most in need. Please drop your blue bags for the St. Lucy Project to the truck after Mass this 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.
Our Parish Life Ministry Fair weekend is coming up on September 16 & 17. Please take advantage after Mass to visit with ministry leaders and representatives outside under the tents about various ministries and choose one for your commitment this year.
