Please join us for a Holy Hour in the Worship Center on First Friday beginning at 7:30 PM. We gather in the presence of the Eucharistic Lord accompanied by music from the Taize Community, a meditative form of prayer. This music includes uncomplicated, repetitive songs, allowing for quiet meditation. Realities of faith are expressed in a few simple phrases which can slowly penetrate the whole being while the simple melodies are played over and over on different instruments.

The Holy Hour also includes a scripture lesson and reflection, time for lighting candles for personal intentions, and the opportunity for confession.

The Virginia Knights of Columbus is supporting the 2015 Virginia Special Olympics Polar Plunge on 7 February.  Council 8600 Knights are asked to consider joining the Virginia Knights team as they we dive into the Atlantic Ocean (mean water temp-39ºF!) to raise funds for the Special Olympics.  If you can’t join them, consider contributing to the Council members who are participating.  Currently, Council 8600 participants include Gerry Rutkowski, Dave Lopez and Steve Bucher.  You can track their fund raising progress, or make donations here.

The Knights of Columbus will sponsor a Family Bingo in support of the Sisters of Our Lady of La Salette, on February 15, 2015 in Farrell Hall at 2:00PM. The proceeds from the Bingo will be given to the Sisters of Our Lady of La Salette in appreciation for their continued services to our parish and diocese.  Please support the sisters by attending Bingo on 15 February or by making a donation. Tickets are on sale in the Foyer after all masses.

The sign up for the 7 March Catholic Diocese of Arlington’s 2015 Men’s Conference is now open.  (Please remember last year, the conference filled up in less than two weeks!)  This year’s conference – entitled Victory Over the Common Enemy – will feature Fr. Larry Richards and author Neal Lozano exploring the nature of sin and evil, and how we can gain victory over them.  Breakfast, lunch, and Mass with Bishop Loverde will be included.  Join your brothers in Christ for an exciting day of prayer, learning, and fellowship in the Lord.  You can sign up for the conference at
this link or by contacting one of the Deanery 6 Captains, Pete Garry or Steve Bucher.

Dear Brother Knights,

Amazon will now donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to Marian Homes (be sure to pick the one identified in Ffx Sta. VA) when you shop at Amazon Smile (smile.amazon.com). Remember, your charitable organization only benefits when you start at http://smile.amazon.com.  

It will mean so much to those we support through our Council's Marian Homes.
