The beginning of each day brings us closer to our end.
Brethren, knowing that it is now the hour for us to rise from sleep.
For now our salvation is nearer than when we believed.
The night is passed and the day is at hand.
Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness,
and put on the armor of light.
Let us walk honestly, as in the day: not in rioting and drunkenness,
not in chambering and impurities, not in contention and envy:
but put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ

Romans 13,11-14

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.

If you desire Confession somewhere other than the regular confessionals, please feel free to call the rectory emergency line 703-835-2808 to request a confessor to meet you in church cry room 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...
