Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary
15 August

Mary stayed on earth after her Son's Ascension, in order to give birth to his Church; but she could not remain forever in exile. Yet she was not to take her flight to heaven until this new fruit of her maternity had acquired the growth and strength which it belongs to a mother to give. How sweet to the Church was this dependence! -- a privilege given to her members by our Lord in imitation of Himself.

Watch From Home

Holy Mass, Evenings of Prayer & Catechesis, Funerals and other events at St. John the Beloved are frequently broadcast via https://livestream.com/StJohnMcLean which simulcasts at https://www.facebook.com/FrCJJP/ automatically. You can watch live video and archives at https://livestream.com/StJohnMcLean without a subscription or a profile.

Sacraments in Unusual Places

Holy Communion can be received in the vestibule after any and every Mass. Outdoor speakers permit you to listen to Mass without coming inside. Our priests can bring you Holy Communion at home as well.

Confessions are taking place among the pews in the rear of the church near the Divine Mercy image. On Saturday mornings and afternoons confessions are heard both in the Church and in the upper Parking Lot near the gymnasium. If you desire Confession at a time other than during those hours listed above, please feel free to call the rectory emergency line 703-835-2808 to request a confessor to meet you in church or in the parking lot.

Neighbors in Need

Many parishioners have volunteered to help deliver groceries or otherwise render assistance to neighbors who are not able to leave their homes. Please call the parish office either to alert St. John the Beloved about someone who needs help or to volunteer.

Eternal rest grant unto them...
