Dear Friends,

We are in need of Catechists. We have been blessed with a 25 percent increase in the number of registered CCD students this year! We are looking for catechists at various grade levels for our parish religious education program. Confirmed high school students who need service hours are welcome!

Training, materials, and support are provided by us, the time and talent by you, and the appreciation by the children and families to whom you are bringing the Good News.

If you feel called to this ministry, please join us! Contact Lynn Jones, DRE, at 703-525-1300. Catechist training is on Wednesday, September 6 from 6:30-8pm. 

As you know, the people of Texas are struggling amid the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey. Bishop Burbidge is asking all of us to join together in prayer and generosity to assist our brothers and sisters in Christ. Please consider how you might be able to help provide relief to those in need. May God bring peace to those who have lost so much. Click here to donate.

In Christ,

Rev. Robert J. Rippy
