You Can Understand the Bible!

Sundays after the 11am Mass. Not meeting on Easter Sunday.

If you want a better understanding of our faith, and a deeper relationship with God, then you should join us for The Bible Timeline Study. By being a part of this study, you will not only benefit personally, but you will also help to bring about a profound renewal in our parish, as we all grow closer to Christ.This is the foundation study in The Great Adventure Bible Study Series that has helped hundreds of thousands of Catholics learn to read the Bible.  The Bible Timeline is a fascinating study that takes participants on a journey through the entire Bible. They will go deep into each period of salvation history and discover the amazing story woven throughout all of Scripture. Using a unique color-coded system, they will learn the major people, places, and events of the Bible and see how they all come together to reveal the remarkable story of our faith. The Bible Timeline has been granted the Imprimatur.

2017 Cardinal's Appeal


Many of our parishioners have received a mailing from Cardinal Wuerl in early January. He has asked that you make a pledge to the 2017 Cardinal’s Appeal.  

The Cardinal’s Appeal not only funds the operations of the archdiocese, it funds services that are of great help to the ministries here in our parish. (For example, Appeal funds support… INSERT SOME OF THE MINISTRIES IN YOUR PARISH THAT RECEIVE TRAINING, OR OTHER FORMS OF SUPPORT. (See the list in the manual or on the Appeal website.)

As in past years, the theme of the Appeal is, “Seek First the Kingdom of God.” (Matthew  6:33) As we seek first the Kingdom of God, we have the capability of helping it to be present in our lives and in the lives of those around us through our works of charity, our works of love, our works of love and compassion. Contributions to the Cardinal’s Appeal offers each of us the opportunity to respond to the needs of others by enabling ministries and services that touch thousands of lives.

Please prayerfully consider a generous pledge to the 2017 Cardinal’s Appeal.
