To go on pilgrimage is not simply to visit a place to admire its treasures of nature, art or history.
To go on pilgrimage really means to step out of ourselves in order to encounter God where he has revealed himself, where his grace has shone with particular splendour and produced rich fruits of conversion and holiness among those who believe.

Our Annual Mass of Inclusion is coming April 27 at 5:30pm While welcome inclusion is our gospel intent and disposition, this liturgy celebrates that vision and demonstrates beautifully what is not only possible but necessary when we proclaim the dignity and worth of every person and the one body in Christ.
We invite people living with disabilities of all ages to participate in various ministries at the Mass, including greeters, readers, singers, altar servers and gift bearers. All of these can be done with a ‘buddy’ or family member as you like. And we witness the beauty of the sacraments made accessible to all, for every person has the capacity to experience God’s love.
God has a beautiful plan. In this plan, everyone counts. There is room for all of us. Everyone belongs! Join us in celebrating the liturgy with no barriers, as one body of Christ.
What a beautiful and wondrous gift to know God’s creative and loving power is at work in each of us. Whatever our gifts, we can offer them in love and we can simply be there for one another. If you would like to serve at this mass in some capacity, or receive the sacraments, please contact Maria Nagy 703-203-5668 or email Dotti Hulburt firstname.lastname@example.org ... See MoreSee Less

Artwork in the Church of St. Joseph, built on the site of the carpentry shop of St. Joseph, Nazareth. A quote from Pope Francis: “St. Joseph’s mission is certainly unique and unrepeatable, as Jesus is absolutely unique. However, in protecting Jesus, in teaching him how to grow in age, wisdom and grace, he is a model for every educator, and in particular for every father. … I ask for you the grace to be every closer to your children, allow them to grow, but be close, close! They need you, your presence, your closeness, your love. Be, for them, like St. Joseph: protectors of their growth in age, wisdom and grace.” ... See MoreSee Less
