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 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.

5 Car Raffle
The annual 5 Car Raffle provides both the council and the parish an excellent opportunity to raise funds for charitable endeavors.  Over the past several years we have been able to successfully raise funds toward such projects as: Marian Homes, the Paul Stefan foundation, Fr Ephrem’s tuition, the Sacred Heart statue in the cemetery, the Holy Family statue in front of the parish center, the annual March for Life busses, the 150th St Mary’s anniversary book, renovations to Old St. Mary's Hall and other smaller efforts requested by Fr Barkett. 
This year proceeds will go toward the new church building fund.  Drawing this year is April 25th at All Saints and you need not be present to win.  Participation allows individual’s the opportunity to win 1 of 5 vehicles or $20 K in cash prizes. Through combining our efforts w/All Saints parish the council creates a win/win situation that maximizes revenue for both organizations.  Hopefully we will have a winner from St Mary’s again this year.
