2021: To Be Determined

Regarding High School CCD Classes: Classes for teens in our parish will begin in 2021. There is no fee for high school classes, but registration is required.

Please note: CCD does NOT necessarily follow the Fairfax County Public School schedule in regard to Monday closings and delays.

We do follow the FCPS Schedule for weather-related cancellations and early dismissals.

Sacramental Schedule

The Church typically opens by 7:30 a.m. and closes around 7 p.m.  But times may vary because of variations in the Pastor's schedule and the occasional inability to obtain help in locking the church at night.
