Feast of the Holy Guardian Angels

The Church teaches that every human being has a guardian angel given to them at birth. St. Basil the Great said, "Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd, leading him to life." Some have thought that priests have a second angel, but this is not taught by the Church.

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...
