On Wednesday, July 21, 7-9pm, Our Lady’s Hall, Fr. Peter Fegan, O.P. will be speaking on Angels and Demons
“For we are not contending against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12)
Formidable and fierce warriors surround us whether we are aware of them or not. Who are these beings and what is their purpose? Do they affect our daily life, and if so, how?
Our faith formation program is in person this year and family style. The details will be on the same link and available on Monday.
Please remember that sacramental preparation is a 2-year process in the Arlington Diocese. If you plan to have your child receive any sacraments in 2023, you need to have that child registered with Faith Formation in 2021-2022 school year.
Registration closes on August 20th. Classes will fill on a first come first serve basis.

For those families who missed our parish Vacation Bible School, this past week, we welcome you to come anytime up until noon on July 9th as we have the hallways decorated with stories from the Old Testament. Walk your child through and tell them an abbreviated version of Salvation History using the walls as a backdrop. There is a scavenger hunt to play and those who complete it, can stop by the faith formation office for a prize. The office will be open from 8:30am-5:30pm Tu-Friday for the prize(July 6th-9th). But if you drop off a completed scavenger hunt off hours (put it under the faith formation door), we will make arrangements with you for prize pick up.
The Theme is “Bible Story Adventures: The Blessings of Obedience!” and it will focus on the Old Testament. We welcome rising Kindergarteners to rising 6th graders!
If you have a 3 or 4 year old child and would like to be a part of VBS, consider joining us for the closing assembly every day of VBS. Parents are to stay with these little ones. They can enjoy a skit, a puppet show and some closing songs. Spaces limited.
The 5th-6th graders will have a different track. They will learn these stories, but they are going to be putting on skits for the younger participant. So if your 5th-6th grader enjoys getting in front of a group of little children and hamming it up for a short daily skit, this will be a lot of fun. Additionally they will be given different responsibilities and activities that we think they will enjoy.
We will be taking registrations first come first served and spaces are very limited compared to past years! Your registration will not be confirmed until after we receive payment. Please look for an email from us with payment information sometime after you register. After you receive that email, you will have 24 hours to submit payment to secure your spot. If we don’t receive your payment we will need to cancel your registration and offer your spot to the next child on the list. We really wish ALL the children that want to participate were able to, but sadly we still need to limit our numbers so please submit payment promptly when you receive our email to guarantee your registration!
Needed: if you have any brown paper grocery bags that you are looking to recycle, we would be grateful to receive them. We are also in need of empty paper towel rolls and empty toilet paper rolls. I will leave a collection box outside of the Faith Formation office.
