Parish Activities Update:
There will be no parish activities outside of mass and sacraments through September. We will reevaluate the situation in September. Thank you for your understanding.

If you can, please keep up with the 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 the 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.
