Pope Francis has declared his year to be the "Year of St. Joseph." It is a celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the proclamation of St. Joseph a Patron of the Universal Church. There are a number of resources available to celebrate this important moment. We would encourage you to explore the websites of the Diocese of Arlington and the US Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB) for their plethora of resources.  Read more here.
Did you know 16% of our Parish families have contributed to this year's Bishop's Lenten Appeal? Thanks to them, we have reached 79% of our monetary goal. Fr. John's real goal is 100% family participation. So, if you are in the 16%, thank you so much!  If you are in the 84%, please join us in pushing us over the top of our goals.
