Help Wanted: 2016 Parish Directory
Can you believe it's been 7 years since we had a parish directory? So much has changed since 2009! Cheryl Harskowitch has agreed to chair this project and is looking for a co-chair and committee members. If you would like to help Cheryl with this, please contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-916-4072. Photos will be taken in late August, early September. You will have the opportunity to purchase photos in addition to receiving a free portrait and a parish directory.
A New Resource for Adult Learning
The Bible and The Virgin Mary is a 12-week group/individual study using video and workbooks to examine what Catholics believe about the Blessed Mother and what role she plays in our lives. Part of the St. Paul Center’s Journey Through Scripture series and narrated by Cardinal Wuerl, this adult education program is being offered free to parishes in the Archdiocese of Washington. Click here to learn more about how your parishioners can participate. The course is available in English and Spanish.
Summer in the City Food Drive:
Our annual Summer in the City food drive for the John S. Mulholland Family Foundation is right around the corner. In the July 31, 2016 bulletin you will read why it is so important for us to support this effort. In the August 7, 2016 bulletin you will find a shopping bag to take home, fill up, and return it to our church on August 13/14, 2016. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support of this important initiative to provide food for those in need at St. Thomas More, St. Francis Xavier, Holy Name of Jesus and other pantries.

Pope Francis has called for a Jubilee Year of Mercy “dedicated to living out in our daily lives the mercy which the Father constantly extends to all of us” (Misericordiae Vultus, 25). The Year of Mercy starts on December 8th. This Holy Year will be a special time for all of us to reflect on God’s love for us and how we encounter mercy: where we need mercy in our lives, how we can seek out and receive mercy, and ways we can share mercy with others. Learn more about how you can encounter God’s mercy this year at mercy.adw.org.
