Will You Help Keep Our Church and School Safe?

Meeting Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7pm in Hayden Hall


Do you have experience in law enforcement, emergency management or services, security, or a related field? Do you work in disaster prevention or recovery? Volunteered with your neighborhood watch? Do you have thoughts or ideas on how to help make our church and school safer? Then St. Philip Parish and our Early Childhood Center need your help.

We are holding a “Safe Worship” information meeting Thursday, Feb. 21 at 7pm in Hayden Hall. Anyone with an interest in helping us develop and implement plans to improve safety and security in and around our facility is encouraged to attend. No experience is necessary: We need your eyes, ears, ideas and prayers!

If you can't make the Feb. 21 meeting, you can still get involved. We have a wide variety of "Safe Worship" volunteer opportunities. For more information, please contact Business Manager Vicky Dobbin at (703) 573-3808, ext. 14 or email at businessmanager@stphilipsparish.com.


Bishop's Lenten Appeal

Together in the Light of Christ

The 2019 Bishop’s Lenten Appeal Commitment weekend is next weekend. Once a year we are asked to make a commitment to support the work of our diocesan programs and ministries which provide services that no single parish could provide on its own. This important effort is a means by which we work together by sharing the gifts God has bestowed upon us. Our parish goal is 100% participation. Please join us to continue God’s work of spirituality, education
and charity in our diocese through this appeal!


Practical Apologetics Helps You Answer Important Questions

Learn How to Defend Your Faith on March 14 in Hayden Hall


Join fellow Catholics—including parents, volunteer catechists, young adults and teens—for an evening devoted to equipping you in your ability to articulate Church teaching on three of the top questions cited by Millennials and Generation Z youth for leaving the Church:
 
  • Because science is truth, isn’t faith a myth?
  • Isn’t all truth relative?
  • If there is a God, why would he allow evil and suffering?
Join us Thursday, March 14, from 7 to 9pm in Hayden Hall for this important and interesting presentation and conversation.
 
Through brief presentations, Q&A, and discussion, you will receive a succinct overview of the key arguments, resources, and responses. Practical Apologetics will boost your confidence and prepare you to naturally share your Catholic faith in any setting.

LightWorks 2019 Starts February 25

Learn New Ways to Experience Jesus


Do you want to grow deeper and more intimate in your relationship with God?  Are you open to Lectio Divina and Ignatian Spirituality methods of prayer? Would you like to share and support fellow participants in this journey of faith? Can you spend 15 to 30 minutes each day for 14 weeks to be with God?

Come to experience Jesus in a new way in prayer through scriptures and discover the yearning in your restless heart of God’s abundant love! Rediscover Christ in your heart! Guided by the insight of St. Ignatius of Loyola, let our Lord speak personally to your heart!

Lighworks is a spirtual program administered by the Office of Multicultural Ministries of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington in colaboration with St. Philip, St. Ambrose and the Lightworks Ministry of the Christian Life Community in the USA.
 
You are invited to Lightworks 2019 at St. Philip Catholic Church. Come check out the program, Monday, February 25, at 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm in the School Library (next to Hayden Hall).  For additional questions, please contact Mai Le-Cao, 703-447-2709 or Buu Tran, 703-868-7320.

Diocese of Arlington Releases Names of Priests Credibly Accused of Sexual Abuse of a Minor

With the hope that it may further the healing process for victims and survivors of clergy sexual abuse, Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of the Diocese of Arlington, has directed that a list of priests who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor be released to the faithful of the Diocese. The list is being published after a full review of all clergy files by experienced and independent examiners (former FBI personnel) who were given full access to all information and files from the history of the Diocese of Arlington since its founding in 1974.

  • The complete list, as well as a letter from Bishop Burbidge, can be found on the Diocese of Arlington website: ArlingtonDiocese.org/ClergyAbuseList
  • The Diocese has also updated a resource that addresses many of the frequently asked questions we have received over the last several months. That resource can be found here: ArlingtonDiocese.org/ChildProtection
