Jesus would often withdraw into a deserted place to commune with God in silence. For Lent, we offer opportunities to join Jesus in contemplative silence. Contemplative space is a time of silence and stillness set aside for meditation and contemplation.
This weekend is Commitment Weekend for the 2020 Annual Appeal. Please be generous in making your pledge. No gift is too small and will support more than 60 ministries and programs benefiting countless women, men, children and families in the Church of Washington, including within our own parish and local community.
The Sodality would like to thank all of those who baked for the Bake Sale and especially those who came and purchased the goodies. The profits from the event will go to support various charities. We appreciate your help!

At the heart of the Gospel is a creative paradox: we must die to live. Jesus says, “Whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it” (Mt.16:25). Jesus’ own life embodies this paradox.
