  • “Next week is Catholic Charities Annual Christmas Collection at all Masses. Catholic Charities carries out the Corporal Works of Mercy in our diocese. Tens of thousands of lives are touched every year. This would not be possible without support from parishioners like you. Please read Bishop Loverde’s letter and other information today in support of Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington in our bulletin. In many ways, Catholic Charities is the parable of the Good Samaritan; Catholic Charities helps people from the womb through end of life. Food, shelter, emergency assistance, counseling, immigrant services, adoption support and elderly care are services benefiting parish communities. So, as we begin the Year of Mercy, please be as generous as you can. Thank you for your support and prayers.”
