In compliance with the Archdiocese of Washington and the Montgomery County School Closure Policy because of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Fr. Barry and I will keep closed all the Religious Education Program classes and activities until April 25 . Plans are to have classes begin on Sunday, April 26, at 10:15am-11:30am in the Parish Life Center.
Through the Archdiocese of Washington, we are still scheduled to celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation with the Most Reverend Roy Campbell and the  2020 Confirmation Candidates on Thursday, April 30.
We hope to celebrate the 2020 1st Reconciliation and 1st Communion in May…. Dates to be announced.

I continue to pray for you, us, parents, youth, children, catechists and those who are infected and for those who care for them, and for our parish community, so that all may be witnesses of faith and hope at this time of uncertainty.  United in Christ.
