ST. MARTIN'S MARRIAGES CELEBRATION
December 2, 2020
Each year the Archdiocese of Washington honors couples married, 25, 30, 40, 45, 50 and 51+ at the annual Jubilarian Mass, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Every parish within our archdiocese is given registration forms to fill out by a certain date for all who would like to participate in this Mass. This year the Mass was cancelled, and many parishes in our archdiocese celebrated those couples who had signed up for the Jubilarian Mass, on Sunday, November 22nd. On that day, Father Tony gave a special blessing to all of our couples who had registered, at the 9:00am Mass in English.
Join Father Tony and Deacon Bill for an Advent night of reflection with Mass, on Monday, December 14th, 2020, from 7:00pm-8:30pm, in the church. The theme is “Prepare The Way For The Lord!” There will also be Adoration and confessions. The Mass and reflection will also be livestreamed on the St. Martin of Tours YouTube channel. For more information, you may call our parish office at 301- 990-3203.
St. Martin’s Boy Scout Troop 926 will be selling 2020 White House Christmas Ornaments. Cost per ornament is $25. Please support the Boy Scouts of St. Martin’s.
For more information contact Greg Cooksey at 240-253-3419 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
