Filipino Catholic Community

Our Filipino Catholic Community is supported by the Fil-Min NOVA (Filipino Ministry of Northern Virginia) ministry, which arranges Masses, provides outreach programs, and developed Paaralang Pinoy, a Filipino Catholic cultural school. Annually, the community gathers to celebrate Simbang Gabi, the Novena of Masses during Advent, throughout numerous parishes throughout the diocese to spiritually prepare for the birth of Christ.

To learn more about programs and events, please contact the Office of Multicultural Ministries at 703-841-3881 or via email.
