Several parishioners have approached me and asked my view of the latest disclosures of clergy sins and coverups.  I dug up an article I wrote many years ago, and in my view, it still holds up.  If interested, take a look:  https://www.catholicculture.org/culture/library/view.cfm?recnum=6663

St. Lucy Project - Our summer food drive to support the Catholic Charities “St. Lucy Project warehouse” that distributes food across the Arlington Diocese has been a wonderful success.  This food will help to feed the many food insecure children in our diocese who do not know where their next meal will come from.  Our generous Parishioners not only brought food and gave cash donations but helped to give out bags and load the truck in order to feed the hungry and minister to the poor of our diocese.  We delivered 2,387pounds of food and $640 dollars thanks to St. Catherine’s!   May God Bless you for Your Generosity!

On Saturday, September 29, 2018 Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington will sponsor a conference entitled: “Seeking Hope and Healing in the Midst of the Opioid Crisis” at Good Shepherd Church from 10am-3pm. We’re all aware of the scourge of opioid addiction in Diocese.  This conference will be an occasion to try to learn more about the problem and consider how we might contribute to finding solutions. For those who would like to participate, there will be Mass at 9am, followed by refreshments, and then at 10am the Conference will begin.  It will include a keynote address on how opioids became a crisis and how we may respond as a community of faith.  There will also be breakout sessions on family resiliency; what parishes and communities can do; and suffering addiction and the healing power of Jesus.  The day will close with a prayer service led by Bishop Burbidge.
