A message from Bishop Burbidge


The weekend mass will be streamed ON YOUTUBE <- Click the link to open the page. The stream will be live for a 5 PM mass as well as recorded for those who want to watch it on Sunday.


A Daily Reflection:
Today as we celebrate the Memorial of St. Pius of Pietrelcina we are reminded that just as Jesus sent out the 12 to help him accomplish his task of bringing healing and hope to people we are as disciples today are called to do the same. he told the disciples that they no longer were just to follow and watch what he did but to be participators in his mission. This can only be done by depending on God and not on themselves. May each of us in our own way spread the Good News to others. During this time that might be by calling family and friends and let them know that you are praying for them, by helping a neighbor who might not be able to do something, there are many ways we can do do what Jesus asks without putting ourselves in danger from the virus.
 
In God's love and peace.

Fr. Mike

Churches Near Me: Churches Close To Me


October 3-4 - In 4 weeks, our second collection will support the annual Mission Cooperative Plan Appeal for our diocese. Our parish mission organization is Sisters Servants Immaculate Heart Mary (IHM). This appeal helps our brothers and sisters who not not have access to basic pastoral services that support and grow their faith, like Mass, the sacraments, religious education, as well as basic needs - like food, shelter, and healthcare. Please go to https://arlingtonmissions.org/sisters-of-the-immaculate-heart-of-mary/ to find out more about their ministry. If you would like to donate to their efforts, click the link at the bottom on the page. Through your support, the MCP Appeal helps these mission organizations form vibrant faith communities and strengthens the global Church. Your gifts and prayers will be a blessing to families who benefit from loving outreach in mission countries.

⚠️⚠️⚠️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.

A Prayer to Jesus for Healing and Guidance

Jesus, Son of God,
you were sent by the Father
to bear our weakness;
be with us in this time of crisis.
 
Merciful Savior,
heal and comfort the sick,
so that, with heath restores,
they may give you praise.
 
Divine Physician,
accompany our caregivers
so that, serving with patience,
they may heal wisely.
 
Eternal Wisdom,
guide our leaders
so that, seeking remedies,
they may follow your light.
 
Christ, the Anointed,
protect us in body and spirit,
so that, freed from harm,
we may be delivered from all affliction.
 
Who lives and reign with God with Father
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
Amen.
