Catholic new to the area?
If you are Catholic and new to the area, we invite you to register with the parish so we may serve you more effectively. I.e. if you need to obtain a sponsor certificate to be a godparent you need to have been registered in the parish for three months prior. The registration form is online, in the back of the Narthex or at the parish office.
Inactive Catholic?
If you are an inactive Catholic, we invite you to come back home. We welcome you to rediscover this beautiful Faith that Jesus Christ founded on Peter and his Apostles. May you experience Our Personal Lord’s love, mercy, peace and joy!
Married outside the church?
If you have been married outside the Church, our priests and deacons are more than willing to help you receive the Sacrament of Matrimony,  an important step to receiving the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Eucharist!
Not Catholic?
If you are not Catholic and would like to explore the Catholic Faith, please feel free to contact us online or call the parish office at (703) 753-6700!

Bishop Loverde issued a joint statement with Bishop DiLorenzo of the Diocese of Richmond on the death penalty which will be published in The Arlington Catholic Herald on May 7 and The Catholic Virginian on May 11. The Bishops write that they want to shift the conversation from who should be executed or how to execute them to why the death penalty is still being applied in a society that has other adequate means to protect itself without taking a human life.

They exhort Catholics to fully embrace the “culture of life,” which affirms the sanctity of the unborn, the poor and vulnerable, immigrants and refugees, and even the “least lovable” members of society, those convicted of committing heinous crimes.

The Bishops’ statement provides timely teaching in the wake of three recent events: failed VA legislation that sought to allow compounding pharmacies to mix execution drugs in secret; last week’s arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court about Oklahoma’s lethal injection protocol; and a letter issued in March by Pope Francis noting there is no humane way to take a human life and repeating the call to end the use of the death penalty.
