PARISH OFFICE HAS MOVED FOR RENOVATION
Continuing with the Capital Campaign, the Parish Office Building is scheduled to be renovated next. The main office has been moved to our new temporary location at 1915 S Edgewood St. If stairs are not an issue, please use back gated entrance next to rectory. Unfortunately, the temporary office is not completely accessible so please call before dropping by if this is an issue so we can find a way to accommodate you. We expect to be back in the regular office space shortly after the first of the new year. Through this month’s transition office operations will continue, but we ask that you contact us by phone and email rather than drop by. Please continue to use the regular parish mailing address to send mail: 2700 19th St S, Arlington VA 22204

The Faith Direct parish code is VA271. We thank you for your consideration.

CELEBRATING 75 YEARS OF FAITH AND FELLOWSHIP
In celebration of 75 years of sharing faith and building community, and recognizing the challenges of maintaining connection while many of us cannot come together in person, the Parish Advisory Board (PAB) has put together some new fellowship programs that will allow parishioners to connect with one another despite the challenges faced by COVID. These include daily Advent reflections, virtual prayer groups, a weekly OLQP moment, virtual memory board, book clubs, and a pen pal program. We have also collated a list of many of the ongoing and active ministries in our parish. See flyer for details.
OLQP Weekly Moment
Join the parish community on Wednesday at 9:37am to reflect on the topic of Vigilance. There is no time requirement for your reflection and no virtual meeting to join. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, please pause for your reflection knowing you are with others from the OLQP community.
Anyone wishing to add the OLQP moment to their calendar can email "OLQP Moment" to Patrick Julius at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the information in a calendar request. Please specify if you want the reminder in Spanish.
