UPCOMING EVENTS AND PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTS

Parish Staff Updates

In the past few months, our parish staff has experienced several transitions. Joe Lenich, our Music Minister, retired at the end of January. Joyce Park, the Assistance to the Pastor, resigned because her family moved to Northern Virginia. Teresa Lee was selected by Bishop Knestout to become the Director of Christian Formation for the Diocese of Richmond.

In addition to these transitions, our parish has been reviewing the evolution of our staffing needs, especially in these ‘post-COVID’ days. Like most organizations and businesses, our parish learned a great deal during COVID, and we have identified new areas of ministry which require staffing attention.

Caritas Survey

CARITAS has completed the construction of its new building and now offers facilities and services to support both men and women experiencing homelessness and/or substance use disorders. As a result of this and the lifting of some COVID restrictions, volunteer opportunities are growing and changing. The Human Concerns Committee would like to increase our involvement with CARITAS, but before we commit to anything, we want to determine the amount of interest parishioners have in each of the activities under consideration.

Please CLICK HERE to complete a CARITAS interest survey to let us know how you would like to be involved.

Endowment Fund

The Endowment Fund was established to provide perpetual funds for people in need of food, clothing, shelter, or health services.  These funds are disbursed annually to non-profit organizations, either providing these direct services to people or working to promote social justice.  The funds should be used for people who reside within the parish or its diocese and must be re-applied for each year.
