For Those Receiving Confirmation: The Confirmation materials are in. Please pick yours up from the back of the church. The materials consist of the Confirmed in the Spirit book, My Confirmation Journal book and a red folder. Please take them home and work at your own pace. We will let you know as soon as we receive a date for Confirmation from the Archdiocese.

Religious Education: Many parishioners have been calling for information about our Religious Education programs. Due to Covid 19, we have had to seriously consider exactly how to provide this important instruction. As of today, we are gathering materials to send home to those preparing for Confirmation and 1st Communion. If your child is in the second year prep for 1st Communion, please contact Janice in the Parish office at 202‐337‐4835 ext.10 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Religious education itself is still pending due to the need of a coordinator, and the decision on whether to do at home or on‐line instruction. Please be patient as we work on providing this program.

Offertory: You might have noticed that our offertory has been down about 50% for the last six months. If after prayerful consideration you find that you would like to help meet the shortfall, we would appreciate it. Here is a form to sign up for Faith Direct if you would like to give that way. Thank you and God bless!

Please follow the protocol:  It is so nice to be able to attend Mass! Please use the sanitary gel, wear a mask and practice social distancing. Together, we can keep each other safe. Let us know if you need more info or have any questions.
