Upcoming Events

How will you serve Christ and the community?

It’s never too late to join …



ALL high schoolers are invited to Youth Night most Sundays from 6:30-8:00pm in room 213.  Join us as we grow in our desire for life-long discipleship with Jesus!  Newcomers and friends are always welcome!  There is no Youth Night on October 1 due to Life Chain.  There is no Youth Night on October 8th due to the holiday.  Our next Youth Night is Sunday, October 15th!

All parishioners, and especially teens, are invited to make a public, prayerful, and peaceful stand for life on King Street in Leesburg on Sunday, October 1st from 2-3:30pm.  We’ll join St. John the Apostle Church and line King Street with signs in support of life.  Let me know if you need a ride from SFDS (meet at 1:30pm) or if you will meet us there!  This PERMISSION FORM is required if attending without a parent.  Read more about Life Chain at lifechain.org.

Monday, October 9th from 5:00-6:30pm– Meet in the kitchen to cook for the Loudoun County Homeless Shelter. Please let me know if you can make it!

Tuesday, October 10th from 5:00-7:00pm– Meet at the Loudoun County Homeless Shelter (or at SFDS at 4:30 if you need a ride) to serve dinner to the guests. This PERMISSION FORM is required. Please let me know if you can make it!


Designs must follow the theme, “Come after Me, and I will make you fishers of men!” (Matthew 4:19).  Submit your designs to the Parish or Youth Office by October 15th.  Votes will be cast at Sunday Youth Nights, and the winner will be announced at Youth RALLY on 10/22!  These
