What’s Happening


April Improve a Home

The St. Mary’s Knights of Columbus Council 8600 is planning its annual “April Improve a Home” (AIH) event for Saturday, April 21st.  We organize free skilled and unskilled (but ready to learn) volunteers from our Council and the parish to assist nearby residents with home upkeep needs.  If you are in need of assistance, or if you know of a friend or neighbor who would benefit from our assistance, please call Tim Hartle, April Improve a Home Coordinator, at 703-200-8375. Requests should be called in by March 16th.  Also, please call Tim if you or your teen-age child would like to volunteer on April 21st.


Mark Forrest

You won’t want to miss Mark Forrest, International Irish Tenor, who will be with us for an evening of prayer, song, and Adoration Sunday, April 22nd, at 7:30 p.m. in the Worship Center.  Bring your family and friends.


Diaper Drive

The Knights of Columbus hold a Diaper Drive on the fourth Sunday of each month.  Please place packages of diapers and wipes in the playpen in the church foyer.
