  • Catholic schools can ‘Walk with Francis’
    As students and teachers around the country prepare for the start of a new school year, Catholic schools and parish religious education programs in the Archdiocese of Washington are also gearing up for Pope Francis’s visit to their hometown.
  • Papal Mass Choir sings together for the first time

  • Catholic University students witness the furniture they designed being built for Pope Francis’s Mass

  • Dual milestones
    Our Lady’s Church in Medley’s Neck marked a double milestone Aug. 16 with a Mass observing the 250th anniversary of the parish and officially installing Father John Nguyen as its pastor. 
  • St. John Vianney Parish marks 50 years of prayer, service and family fun
    Welcoming people to the 50th anniversary Mass of St. John Vianney Parish in Prince Frederick on Aug. 2, Father Peter Daly noted, “This is a great occasion. Fifty years of prayer, faith and grace in this place.” 
  • As Franciscan parish, St. Camillus embraces care for creation
    Each year at the March for Life, the youth of St. Camillus Parish in Silver Spring carry a banner that reads “Choose Life,” with words like abortion, death penalty, injustice and environmental degradation all crossed out. “We are very proud of our consistently pro-life banner,” said Father Jacek Orzechowski, a Franciscan priest at St. Camillus Parish. “...Care for creation, justice, respect for life [all] really fit together. They are part the seamless garment, a consistent ethic of life.” 
  •  “Blessed are You, Lord God of All Creation”
    “Praise be to you, my Lord.” With these prayerful words, Pope Francis begins his recent encyclical, Laudato Si’, which he concludes also with prayer. Now our Holy Father has instituted a World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation to be celebrated annually on Sept.1 in conjunction with the custom of the Orthodox Church.  
  • St. John Bosco’s name and mission shapes  school named for him, says its new president
    Two months into his new job as president of Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School in Takoma Park, Salesian Father Michael Conway feels right at home. The school, which opened in 2007 and is cosponsored by the Archdiocese of Washington and the Salesians of Don Bosco, embodies the faith and spirit of St. John Bosco, the order’s founder, for whom the school is named. 
  • Walking the ‘Walk with Francis’
    I know we all have busy lives, so the goal here is to do something simple and yet powerful, much like Francis himself. I encourage you to consider a pledge that is: 1) simple – it’s easy to do; 2) measurable – you can do it every day, or between now and the Pope’s arrival, etc.; and 3) flexible – you can do whatever speaks to you.
