Dear Friends,

SHARE:  VOLUNTEER!

I encourage–and challenge–every parishioner to place their gifts at the service of our mission.  To explore the many ways you may serve, check out the link to our “SHARE” Brochure on the homepage of our website, and contact the relevant parish staff member to sign up.  We–Jesus, his Church–need your help! We are grateful to all those who already, with their time and talents, help us fulfill our mission of bringing the Good News to the heart of Arlington.

RELIGIOUS EDUCATION & YOUTH MINISTRY REGISTRATION…

…is now taking place.  Parents, please register all your children and teens for our dynamic programs for formation in our faith.  You can do so easily online: visit our website under the LEARN menu.

ADULT SACRAMENTS AND CONVERTS

We have opened registration for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (the “RCIA”):  this is for any adult Catholics who have not received all their sacraments, and for any non-Catholics who are interested in becoming Catholic.  Register easily on our website under the “LEARN” menu.
