The Sacraments are a visible sign of life and vitality of the Church.
For other sacramental needs, please feel free to contact the parish office.
Baptisms are scheduled weekly at a regular weekend Mass with some exceptions. Families desiring baptism for babies and young children gather once prior to the celebration to discuss the nature of the sacrament, the meaning of the Liturgy and the responsibilities of caring for a precious child of God. To arrange for a baptism and preparation, please contact Christina Kozyn at the parish office at 703-979 -5580 or by email: email@example.com

Our First Communion program has been developed to facilitate and support our parents as "first and best teachers of the faith", enabling them to prepare their children at home for the sacrament of First Holy Communion. This program is a part of our family based model of religious education. Each family receives family friendly textbooks, clearly defined and detailed learning objectives, and actual teaching guides to help you teach the material to your child. This material will include; vocabulary, prayers, home lesson plans and even time management charts to keep you on schedule. During the course of the program, the children will attend a series of four Saturday Workshops, to review, reinforce, and evaluate student understanding. A mentor program has been established to assist families who would like additional instructional support. The First Communion program begins in October and concludes with the celebration of the sacrament in June.
