Vestibule Project

A project in the works for several years now, the expansion of our beloved vestibule is set to begin in a matter of days. The North Wall and Main Entrance will extend eight feet closer to the curb (as much as the Fairfax County Zoning Board will allow) and a new handicapped-accessible entrance will open to the East toward the garden courtyard.


The new vestibule will be covered by a pitched roof. Arched windows will flank the main doors. The little roof over the steps will extend almost all the way to the curb.

In Testimonium...

If you bought three purple candles and a rose candle already for your Advent wreath, congratulations! You only need three more purple candles and you will be good to go. It is also time to get your Advent calendar ready.

Every Sunday of Advent we will be praying Vespers in the Church at 4:00 p.m., preceded by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and a Pro-Life Rosary.

Don’t forget to hang your stockings or put out your shoes the night before St. Nicholas Day, which is December 6.

That same Friday, December 6 will be the school’s annual Christmas Pageant. The music and acting are delightful!
