from the Bread of Life Discourse (John 6,22-71)

35 Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst. 36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. 37 All that the Father gives me will come to me; and him who comes to me I will not cast out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me; 39 and this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up at the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father, that every one who sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day."

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...
