UPDATE – Women’s Retreat: Marian Holiness

 Sr. Marie Benedict of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist is offering a mini retreat on Friday, January 7th from 9:00 – 12:30 for the women of Holy Trinity.  We’ll begin with Mass, share a light buffet style breakfast and receive two talks as well as a period of Adoration.   RSVP is appreciated so we can plan for food space.  Contact relevent@holytrinityparish.net by January 4th if you plan to attend.

We are very much looking forward to the mini retreat on Friday with you all!   There has been a change of plan, due to uncontrollable circumstances for Sr. Joseph Andrew.  The hardship of air travel currently, along with the surge of covid cases nationwide makes it impossible for her to come to Virginia at this time.  
Good news!  Sr. Marie Benedict, of the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharist, has agreed to lead the retreat at the last minute.  Spread the word, we still have space for more attendees. 

*Donations are appreciated the day of, to help cover the cost of the food and Sister’s stipend.  There is no set fee, please only donate if you feel called to. 
*This is a child-free retreat with the exception of nursing babies.

Prayer Warriors Needed

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name,
there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20

This is a pivotal moment for our nation and the pro-life movement. On December 1, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. This has the potential to limit or overturn Roe v. Wade.

There will be a Prayer Rally at the Supreme Court on December 1, 8:00 am – 12:00 pm.  There will also be a special Prayer Vigil today, November 30 and tomorrow, December 1 in front of the Falls Church Women’s Healthcare Center at 900 S. Washington St. from 7 am – 7 pm. For more information, you can just show up and pray!  

CatholicVote is calling on Catholics everywhere to spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament on December 1. And I can’t think of a better place to be on this important day than in front of Our Lord in the adoration chapel or the main church at Holy Trinity. We are SO BLESSED to have Eucharistic Adoration 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I encourage you to come pray for an hour on Wednesday with the intention of ending abortion in our country and throughout the world.
