On a cold and rainy November day at the U. S.

Citizenship and Immigration Services in Baltimore,

Maryland, Father Charles McCann raised his right hand

together with 68 others from 35 countries, took the Oath

of Allegiance, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, sang the

Star-Spangled Banner and became a citizen of the United

States. President Donald Trump via a pre-recorded video congratulated and welcomed

the 69 new citizens into our national family. After serving our great 
country and the

Archdiocese of Washington for 50 years, Fr. McCann is now citizen Charles McCann.

The Sunday TV Mass

Do you know someone who can't get to Mass? Since 1952 , the Archdiocese of Washington has produced a

weekly televised Mass for those who are homebound, broadcast from the Crypt Church of the Basilica of the

National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. It is a wonderful ministry for those members of our Catholic family

who are unable to be physically present with a local worshiping community for the Sunday Eucharistic Liturgy.

The Mass airs every Sunday at 10:30am on WDCW-50:

  • No cable; Dish or DIRECTV subscribers: Ch. 50
  • Comcast: Ch 23 in Washington, DC and Montgomery County: Ch. 3 
    in
     Prince George's County and Southern Maryland
  • RCN: Ch. 15
  • Verizon: Ch. 3
 

                                                                           

Do you know the qualifications to be a God parent?


 1) Be a registered Parishioner.  2) Have received all the sacraments of initiation.  3) Are a practicing Catholic (coming to Mass).  4) Attend a baptism preparation class.
            This also applies to someone who has been asked to be a Godparent from another parish.

 

  

  

  

Admitted to the Hospital? 


If you are being admitted or have been admitted to the hospital and would like to receive Communion, please contact the rectory or have a family member contact the rectory with your name, the hospital, the room number and anticipated length of stay.  This way, either a priest or extraordinary minister of Holy Communion can provide you with the sacrament.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be. What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (St. John the Evangelist, Apostle; John 1:1-5).
