Worship Nights


 Tuesday Nights at the Historic Church (7:30 to 9:00pm)

September 25       November 6           

February 26           April 23

Twice a semester, we meet for just one purpose: to worship.

In our me-centered world, all day long we are asked how we are feeling and what our status is. It is exhausting to survive the roller coaster of our ever changing moods.

Worship is one of those words that we hear all the time, but we rarely think about what it really means. Here’s what the Catechism of the Catholic Church has to say about worship:

2097 To adore God is to acknowledge, in respect and absolute submission, the “nothingness of the creature” who would not exist but for God. To adore God is to praise and exalt him and to humble oneself, as Mary did in the Magnificat, confessing with gratitude that he has done great things and holy is his name. The worship of the one God sets man free from turning in on himself, from the slavery of sin and the idolatry of the world

Worship Nights are held at the St. Mary’s Historic Church (off of Ox Road and Fairfax Station Road). For about 90 minutes, we take the attention off of ourselves and refocus our minds, our hearts, and our voices on God the Father whose love holds us in existence. In a changing world, we cling to the unchanging love of Jesus and we are set free from fear and worry by the power of the Holy Spirit.

These nights are open to anyone and everyone who wants to worship.
