Build your Relationship with God thru RCIA

(Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)

Are you or someone you know seeking a fuller relationship with Christ through Catholic teaching?  Come journey with the RCIA program to a deeper faith life and full initiation into the Catholic faith through the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. A welcome is extended to all those who are not baptized, those who are baptized in another Christian tradition and those baptized Catholics who have not yet received the sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation.  For more information, please contact Father Barkett, 703-978-4141.


Your Talents Are Needed!

The choirs of St. Mary’s strive to lead the congregation in song, inspire prayer, and bring us all closer to God.  Music gives us a glimpse of the beauty of heaven, where angels sing unceasingly: “Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of hosts!”  But, we need your help!  We have a variety of ensembles presenting many styles of music.  All singers and instrumentalists are welcome to contact the music director for details, davidb@stmaryofsorrows.org, 703-978-4141, x114.


St. Mary’s Preschool Has A Few Openings

The big kids are all settled into their school routine, but do you have a 2 ½ – 5 yr old child ready to start preschool and wonder where to start?  Your child’s first steps in an away-from-home environment will be welcoming, with caring adults trained to recognize and meet his or her needs in a safe and nurturing place as we provide age-appropriate life skills, while developing a relationship with Jesus and our Catholic Faith.  Registration for the 2018-2019 school year is ongoing; there are still a few openings in a couple of our classes.  Please call Miss Michelle in the Preschool Office, 703-978-4557, to make an appointment for a tour.
