One-Hundred Children Receive First Holy Communion at St. Agnes this May

CCD and School Second Graders Encounter Christ in the Eucharist
May 14, 2019

St. Agnes CCD and school students encountered Jesus Christ in the Eucharist for the first time over the last couple of weeks. Father Frederick Edlefsen, our Pastor, celebrated the Masses on Saturday, May 4, and Saturday, May 11, at which 52 St. Agnes CCD students and 48 St. Agnes School second graders, respectively, received their First Holy Communion. Family and friends gathered to celebrate on this divine occasion with the children, as they took the next step in becoming fully initiated into the Christian life through the reception of Christ’s Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity – the food of eternal life.

Thank you to our second grade catechists, Mrs. Deborah Wooldridge and Mrs. Martha Gaudet, and second grade teachers, Ms. Mary Kay Soos and Ms. Mary Ann Kenealy, for all their work in preparing the students to receive this Sacrament. Thank you to Bernadette Michael, Director of Religious Education, and Marie Macnamara, Administrative Assistant for Religious Education, for their efforts in organizing these special celebrations.Read more

Earlier today, St. Agnes parishioners joined over 6,500 pro-lifers in the first-ever Virginia March for Life in Richmond, VA. The march, hosted by the March for Life, the Virginia Catholic Conference, the Family Foundation, and the Virginia Society for Human Life, began with a rally at the State Capitol at 11:00 am. Speakers included, Melissa Ohden, survivor of a saline infusion abortion; Ryan Bomberger, founder of The Radiance Foundation; Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life; Felicia Pricenor, Associate Director of the Virginia Catholic Conference; Olivia Gans Turner, President of the Virginia Society for Human Life; and Victoria Cobb, President of The Family Foundation. After the rally, supporters departed from the Capitol steps to peacefully march in defense of human life.

At the beginning of this momentous day, the Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge, Bishop of the Diocese of Arlington, celebrated the 7:00 am Mass at the Cathedral of Saint Thomas More in Arlington.
