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.

Planning for the 2019/2020 CCD school year is well underway. St. John’s Religious Education Office is considering how many teachers will be needed for our Pre-K – 8 th Grade programs. To insure accurate planning for this coming Fall, CCD Registration forms for the 2019/2020 School Year have been emailed to all returning families. Registration forms are also available for download here. Please fill out the form with all requested contact and registration information and return it with your check to the CCD office at your earliest convenience. You will receive a rate reduction if you register before June 30, 2019.

We will do our best to accommodate your wishes as to class session. Once the class is full however, we may have to put your child into a different session. You have greater choice when you register early. If you have any questions, or need information, please email [email protected] or call 703-356-5275.

"Cardinal Pell to appeal to Australian High Court"

The labor of Ed Condon, DC Bureau Chief at Catholic News Agency, is worth quoting in part:

Cardinal George Pell will appeal his conviction to the Australian High Court, following the decision last week by the Court of Appeal in Victoria to uphold his conviction for child sexual abuse.
