Padre's Page - February 25

Dear Friends, here’s what’s up this week:

BISHOP’S LENTEN APPEAL 

Have you made a generous commitment yet?  The BLA funds programs such as seminarian formation, Catholic Charities, crisis pregnancy assistance, youth ministry, and much more….  Our parish goal is 100% of our parishioners participating, so please give:  every pledge counts!  If you haven’t yet made a pledge, you may do so easily online at our parish website or on the diocesan website:  arlingtondiocese.org

ADULT FAITH FORMATION–MONTHLY BOOK DISCUSSION:  THE BENEDICT OPTION

Join us this Monday, February 26, with an exploration of Chapters 3-5 of Rod Dreher’s “The Benedict Option,” a compelling account of our pressing need for intentional Christian community.  For more information  see our parish website under “News & Events.”

PARISH REDEVELOPMENT “TOWN HALL” MEETING

We are continuing our discussions about a potential redevelopment of our parish site, which could better support our parish mission now and in the future.  This week we will host a second Parish Redevelopment “Town Hall” Meeting, on Thursday, March 1, at 7:00 P.M. in the gym, to solicit even more feedback from parishioners–especially from those who have not attended any previous consultation meetings.  For more information, please see our website under “News & Events.”

I remain, your servant in Christ Jesus,

Father Don
