Weekly Announcements:

A NATIVITY SCENE FOR BABY JESUS: Family Catechesis: Please join us on Gaudete Sunday, December 12 beginning at 9:00 until 10:15 to craft your family’s own nativity scene.

You can give either a one-time donation or a monthly recurring donation from your checking account or credit card. This way no matter what and where you are, you will be supporting our mission of sharing the Gospel.

Please Wear a Mask During Mass: The Archdiocese of Washington has just updated their coronavirus guidelines. We are to wear masks again when indoors. Please follow these guidelines at all of our Masses this weekend, and until further notice. Much appreciated!

Adoration - Wednesday evenings: You are all welcome every Wednesday for an hour of Adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament from 7pm to 8pm in the church. During this hour, the priest will be available for confessions. We will end it with a benediction.

Flocknote: We are thrilled to introduce “Flocknote” to OLV Parish! Created by Catholics for Catholic Parishes, Flocknote is a modern communications tool which will enable parishioners to stay up-to-date with Parish and Ministry news. Parishioners can choose their preferred way to receive information – text and/or email – and can also choose which information you’d like to receive – the weekly bulletin, reminders for Mass times as well as Holy Days, invitations to Parish events, and so on. If you’re involved in groups or committees at OLV, Flocknote will allow you communicate with your group more efficiently.  Please read the weekly bulletin to learn more.
