Second Collection for Vocations – March 2021

Our Council will be promoting and accepting donations to assist the parish’s young men and women pursuing religious
vocations. Your assistance is needed to:

  • pass out flyers and envelopes before Masses on March 13-14
  • answer questions and receive donations after Masses on March 20-21

Sign up to help or contact Leo Carling (540-631-7555, LeoCarling4@gmail.com) to volunteer.  It will only take a few minutes of your time after the Mass you attend.

If you have any questions about the Second Collection, please contact George Kopcsak (540-622-3308, gkopcsak@gmail.com).

Support the Prison Ministry in Warren County

Approximately 200 men and women incarcerated in the RSW Regional Jail are released every year.  These people need models of Christianity to help them return to the community as worthy citizens.  A few hours of your time could make a permanent difference in their lives.  They need guidance and practical support to obtain basic aspects of life (e.g. clothing, a place to live, work and transportation arranged by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington) as well as mentorship.  If you are interested in learning more, visit the Diocese’s Prison Ministry website or contact Keith Henderson (571-236-2878, henderson.keith01@gmail.com).

Upcoming Events

Mark your calendar and reach out to the Council’s POC to offer your assistance.  No POC? If you’re called to do so, please step up.
