One of the beautiful gifts of our faith is the power of intercessory prayer -
that we can pray for one another.
Contact the office to add an individual to our parish prayer list, (703) 780-4055, or firstname.lastname@example.org (You may use this Prayer Request Form.)
You may also inquire about adding an individual to the list of recipients for our Card Writing Ministry.
Prayer Intention Book
Parishioners are invited to include prayer requests in our Prayer Intention Book located in the Narthex (just outside the entrance to the worship space). The Book is brought up to the altar at Mass. The intentions are not read aloud.
Request a Prayer Quilt
Our Prayers and Squares Ministry makes hand-made quilts for those in need of prayers and comfort. Download the request form and either drop it off at the Parish Office or email it to Lisa Shannon, email@example.com
Parishioners say a prayer as they tie a knot on a prayer quilt.

How many intentions may I request?
We are blessed to have a large, faithful community, but with that blessing is a challenge. With just about 500 Masses each year, and well over 3,000 families, we sadly realize that not all requests can be fulfilled. We kindly request that you limit intentions to 5 per year.
Are there other options for Mass Intentions?
If you would like to schedule additional Mass intentions, we ask that you consider requesting an intention with some of the organizations affiliated with our visiting clergy, or local parishes, or other options:
