Pope Francis has declared a Jubilee Year of Mercy from December 8, 2015 (Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception) through November 20, 2016 (Solemnity of Christ the King) where he calls on everyone to experience the gift of God’s loving compassion and the power it has to transform our hearts.  During the current Jubilee Year of Mercy in the Catholic Church, Catholics worldwide are proclaiming God’s love and mercy.  All Catholics are receiving a special blessing and pardon from God.  Check out the Archdiocese of Washington Year of Mercy web site to learn more about the purpose of a Jubilee Year, and events  planned for the Archdiocese of Washington.

LECTIONARY PREVIEW meets on Wednesday at 9:15 am in the rectory. This group previews and discusses the upcoming Sunday readings. We are always looking for new members. Stop in and see what we are all about! Everyone is welcome.


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Volunteers are needed to serve the children of the parish by becoming a Catechist or Aide for Religious Education.  Is God calling you to help share His love and help the children learn and embrace our beautiful Faith?  Our children are ready and eager to learn more about the love that Jesus has for all of us and how we can come together as members of the Body of Christ to help each other learn more about the Catholic faith.  Without dedicated volunteers we would not be able to offer Religious Education to our children.  Please pray and ask God if He is calling you to serve in the Ministry of Catechesis.  Contact Marlen Coles with further questions at stphiliptheapostlereled@yahoo.com or leave a message at the rectory.

VOCATION PRAYER: Dear God, bless our family life and nurture us with your love and care. Help us to be attentive to the needs of one another. Guide us to reach beyond our home in service to others. We ask you to open the hearts of our children to hear your voice, to know their true vocation, and to find true happiness in you.  Amen.

“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.”     Mt. 9:37-38
