Get your coffee and stay in the commons for
these interesting and insightful presentations
from 10:45-11:30 on Sunday mornings. Next
weekend, Fr. Jonathan will help us explore the
fascinating "theology of the body." On October
26, Arn Manella will introduce some of our
most heroic Catholic military chaplains.
Altar Servers Needed
Do you have a calling to be an altar server? We
are encouraging youth ages 9-17 to attend an
introduction to altar serving to be held
following the 9:30am Mass on October 19. If
interested please speak to Arn Manella or
Charlie MacDonald following any Sunday
From Our Bishops
[On Monday Bishop Francis DiLorenzo of the Diocese of Richmond and Bishop Paul Loverde of
the Diocese of Arlington issued the following through the V irginia Catholic Conference.]
Weekly Parish Bulletin
With deep disappointment, we learned today that the U.S. Supreme Court has denied review of
lower-court decisions that struck down Virginia's law prohibiting same-sex marriage and similar
laws in four other states. Because of the Supreme Court's denial, marriages between couples of
the same sex have begun today in Virginia. This occurrence reflects a fundamental
misunderstanding of the intrinsic nature of marriage and represents an injustice to over a million
Virginia voters, whose decision was to enshrine the understanding of marriage as the union of
one man and one woman into our state's constitution.
Marriage has been affirmed by countless generations because it uniquely benefits the common
good by recognizing the union of two equal but complementary individuals - that is, a man and a
woman - who, by their life-giving union, may create a family. Marriage not only benefits the man
and woman who enter it, but also best serves children because of the particular contributions that
mothers and fathers bring to family life. Therefore, Virginia's constitution rightly recognized the
unique contributions marriage makes to children and to the common good.
As Bishops, we will continue to affirm the truth about marriage, the lifelong union of one man
and one woman, as well as its essential importance to the common good. As pastors, teachers,
and faith leaders, we can do nothing less. It is our fervent hope that the Supreme Court will
reconsider this fundamental issue in the future.
Religious Education
Our Religious Education program is now in its
second month of exciting exploration of God's
truth and beauty. Parents are asked to ensure
that all children and youth ages 4 to 18 are
enrolled and actively participating.
Registration is still available for our classes
which meet Sunday mornings, 10:45-11:45am.
Please contact Anne Glancy through the parish
office or stop by St. Jude Hall next Sunday.
All Souls Day Altar
As November approaches, we look forward to
again erecting our "Altar of the Dead" near the
image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Please bring
photos of deceased loved ones to place on the
altar until the beginning of Advent. Additionally,
please write any names of deceased individuals
who you would like remembered at Mass this
month, in our parish Book of the Dead.
Youth Group Service Project
Our Youth Group is excited about participating
in the Diocesan Day of Service on November 8
by playing bingo with our neighbors at
Carrington Place. They also hope to build a
raised garden box for the residents there. They
need some help from parishioners with
carpentry experience to build it. To find out
more, please contact Mary Lynn Krusz at 4436973.
Bible Study
The group will meet for lunch at Hobbs Hole,
on Wednesday, October 15, after Lauds.

Small Faith Groups Beginning
The parish is now prepared to offer an
important tool to grow in holiness. Small
groups will gather to consider the process of
spiritual growth as outlined by some of our
greatest saints including Teresa of Avila, John
of the Cross, Therese of Lisieux, and Bernard
of Clairvaux. The weekly meetings will take
your schedule into account. If interested,
contact Fr. Jonathan.

kermés, a food sale that combines a festive
meal with a fundraiser, for 1:30pm on Sunday,

dollars! All proceeds go to support our capital
