FAMILY FAITH FORMATION
For all those interested in learning more about OLQP's unique Family Circle Program of faith formation, please plan to attend an information session to be held on Sunday, August 26 from 10:45 am -11:15 am in Ministry Center Classrooms 3 and 4. The Family Circle program moves beyond the traditional classroom model of CCD, engaging parents as first and best teachers of the faith, and involving the whole family. For more information, contact Theresa
Palmisano, Director of Faith Formation at firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you have a rising 7th grader interested in preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation, please note that a mailing has gone out with all of the registration details. If you did not receive the information, and would like to, please contact us immediately (Kremedios@olqpva.org), or pick up the letter in the back of the church. The letter contains program prerequisites (Bible stories), candidate check-ins, and important registration information. Parents' meetings are scheduled for September 5th (English), and September 9

The journey begins with a “no-strings” inquiry session on Thursday, Sept. 20, at 7 pm in Founders Room. Join us! For information, contact Kevin and Alice Curtin at email@example.com or 703-461-3082.
