God’s Plan: Reconciliation and Joy!
Robert Feduccia will be with us to reflect on our call to
follow Jesus more closely this Lent. So consider what you
are doing this Lent to set time aside for Jesus. Say “yes”
to this invitation. Robert combines his unique set of
experiences as a parish youth minister, retreat leader, and
keynote presenter with his graduate degree in theology, and
is able to express spiritual depth in ways that are relevant
to real concerns we face today. He enjoys opportunities
to draw people into a relationship with the Lord and the
Church. He lives in Portland, Oregon with his wife and 4
children. Mark your calendars and join others in the parish
as we consider the path to “Come back to Me, With All Your
Heart.” We ask you to sign up in the Commons or email
Cass Hooker at [email protected] Child care
available by reservation.

Morning Outreach Ministry
Did you know… that our Morning Outreach Ministry
assists members of the community who are in need and
unable to pay the full amount of their utility bills and/or
medical prescriptions? For the month of January we were
able to prevent 24 families from having their utilities cut off
and one person fulfill their medical prescription. May God
be praised!
Diversity Circles
The Circles of Diversity will begin in just a few weeks! Please
stop by the table in the Commons to sign up. This Lent,
join with our brothers and sisters in the following faiths,
Episcopalians, Baptists, Hindis, and Muslims, as we learn
more about one another and share our common humanity.
Sunday Suppers
“Many hands make the load lighter,” (a Haitian proverb).
Thanks to the generosity of time, talent and treasure, we
continue to provide a place of community and nourishment
for the guests of our Sunday Suppers. Last Sunday (2/1) we
served 108 people. There are a number of ways that you can
serve in this ministry. We need folks to: make phone calls,
set up, cook, greet and register our guests, eat and fellowship
with Sunday Supper diners, clean up, read to the children,
clean the dish towels, make donations, etc. Please stop by
the Sunday Supper Table in the Commons and see how you
can be part of this very rewarding ministry.

Second Collection - Feb 21 & 22
Mobile Health Wagon
The Health Wagon provides healthcare based on Catholic
principles, and the Diocese has continued to support its
work, primarily through the Bishop Sullivan Endowment
Fund, which has helped pay for the new vehicle (an RV) that
the medical staff use to travel to clinic sites. They serve a
population with a poverty rate of 70% to 140% higher than
the rest of Virginia. This collection will be used to pay for
ongoing repairs and maintenance to the vehicle and other
critical needs as necessary.
