“What can we do to keep our heart from growing numb, becoming anesthetized? How do we make the joy of the Gospel increase and take deeper root in our lives? Jesus gives the answer.”

EDUCATION: Formed in His Communion

Adult Faith Formation

The pursuit of a relationship with Jesus is a life-long work of grace and perseverance. As St. Ambrose himself once wrote,"every age is mature for Christ!" (De Virginitate, 40).

Adults are encouraged to seek the companionship of parish friends who follow Christ through the life of his universal Church, and often pursue these timeless practices:
Frequent reception of the sacraments
Daily readings
The Rosary
Continuing education

Sunday Mornings:

Lightworks "Lectio Divina" Meetings

In recognizing the thirst of many for a deep sense of spirituality based on a more intimate relationship with Christ, Lightworks is aimed to bring about this experience in a communitarian atmosphere.  The program will meet for 14 straight weeks, in which the participants will share the fruit of their reflection in a friendly setting of small groups of 8 people.  There will be printed materials to give guidance for the participants to reflect on passages of Scripture.  The overall direction of the 14 weeks of reflection is to attain the love of God in a personal level, and with this direction, a participant will journey through experiences on the Incarnation, the Passion and the Resurrection.  The next 14 week session will begin soon.  For any questions please contact: Tien Dao at:  Tiendao@cox.net or 703-963-1075

                                                                                      Meeting times:  Thursdays, 6:30-9pm

Small gestures of love, of tenderness, of care, make people feel that the Lord is with us. This is how the door of mercy opens.
