Assumption Novena 2020
Bishop Burbidge is inviting the faithful of the Diocese of Arlington to join with him in offering the novena to Our Lady, which begins on August 6th to entrust healthcare workers and all who suffer from or have died from COVID – 19 to the intercession of the Blessed Mother.
There will be no parish activities outside of mass and sacraments through August. We will reevaluate the situation in September. Thank you for your understanding.
Update on Mask Policy: Anyone 10 and under does not have to wear a mask.
Confessions are by appointment and 4-4:30 Saturday.
If you can, please keep up with contributions. For those wishing to move over to online giving until normal activity resumes go to http://giving.shcva.org with your Envelope number to sign up. You may also mail in checks if you prefer.
Offertory and Tax Deduction Changes for all Taxpayers
The ongoing support of parish offertory is so important in meeting our parish expenses. All taxpayers for 2020 may take an "above-the-line" deduction for up to $300 in cash donations. If you itemize, you may deduct up to the entire amount of your adjusted gross income (AGI) for cash gifts in 2020, without reference to the 60 percent limitation that would otherwise apply.
For more information contact the Development Office at Arlington Diocese (703) 841-3896.

⚠️⚠️⚠️PLEASE BE AWARE OF A PHISHING SCAM GOING AROUND THE DIOCESE
Please ignore any emails or texts that comes to you from our pastor with a vague request for “financial help” or to “buy cards” of any sort (i.e. store cards, steam cards, etc). They may say this is for cancer patients, etc….This is a scam. If you are contacted, please verify any information by calling the office first, at 703-590-0030. ⚠️⚠️⚠️
Parish Announcements will be shared here. For more information, check out this week's bulletin.
