Some suggestions for Summer Viewing:
Registration is now open for Religious Education classes for 2017-2018. Forms are available online (click here), or in the Church, Religious Education Office and the Rectory. A late fee applies after August 1. All new students must provide a Baptism Certificate if they were not Baptized at St. Lawrence Church.
Volunteers are needed to help in the Religious Education program. Especially needed are Prayer Angels who, like the Angel at Fatima, teach CCD children their prayers. Volunteer for Monday or Wednesday from 7-8 p.m. You do not need to come every day. If you can help, please call Anne Marie Pierce, Director of Religious Education, at 703-971-8541 or email email@example.com
