YOUTH AND YOUNG ADULT MINISTER MIKE MOTHES LEAVING OLQP
From this week's bulletin: "I have recently accepted a position as Northern Virginia Regional Director of Ignatian Volunteer Corps. Consequently, at the end of this month, I will be leaving OLQP as Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry. There was a great deal of discernment that went into this decision, including the more time I will be able to spend with my family. I am so grateful for the opportunity to have worked with the youth and young adults at OLQP."
RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS (RCIA)
RCIA is a gradual process of formation for those seeking a deeper relationship with God and a better understanding of the Catholic faith. Whether you are just beginning your faith journey, are already baptized in another Christian tradition and want to explore Catholicism, or are seeking sacramental preparation, RCIA is the pathway. The journey begins with a “nostrings” inquiry session on Thursday, Sept. 20, at 7 pm in Founders Room. Join us! For information, contact Kevin and Alice Curtin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 703-461-3082.
