    Bishop Loverde RALLY

    Living the joy of pilgrimage

    A column written by The Most Reverend Paul S. Loverde featured in the Arlington Catholic Herald

    Pilgrimage has been a reality uniting us as a diocesan family in these recent weeks. Why do I say that?

    First, there was the diocesan pilgrimage, sponsored by the Office of Development, to the Holy Land, Sicily and Rome. Our parishioners were invited to take part in both or either one of the two segments of this pilgrimage. So, some among us made the entire pilgrimage, that is, to the Holy Land (Sept. 3-10) and to Sicily and Rome (Sept. 10-18). Others did one or other of these segments. Everyone, however, found this pilgrimage to be a time of many blessings, nurturing insights and deepening unity as disciples of the Lord and members of the Church of Arlington (or, as in the case of a few from outside the diocese, friends of this diocesan church).


    Theology on Tap continues on Monday, October 12
    All adults (ages 21-39) single and married are invited. The talk, " The Power of the Holy Spirit" by Rev. Joseph Brankatelli, Chaplain for the U.S. Army, begins at 7:30 pm & ends with Q&A at 8:30 pm.

    Bishop Loverde to celebrate Red, White and Blue Masses and Mass for Peoples with Disabilities

    Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde will celebrate four special Masses in October, beginning with the Blue Mass Oct. 3 at St. Agnes Church, 2002 N. Randolph St., Arlington, at 5 p.m. The Blue Mass is celebrated to honor and pray for the safety of men and women who work in police, fire and rescue departments. The Mass also is in memory of those personnel who have fallen in the line of duty.
