Information regarding Papal Visit
August 24, 2015
How blessed we are that our Holy Father will be visiting the
Archdiocese of Washington in just a few weeks, and many, many
people are eager to attend the Mass which will be celebrated by
Pope Francis on Wednesday, 23 September, at 4:15 p.m., on the
east portico of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate
Conception on the grounds of The Catholic University of America.

information regarding the allocation of tickets in the August 23 bulletin.

Discovering Christ Returns to Saint Peter's Parish
What is Discovering Christ? It is a seven-week experience that invites
guests to hear the Good News and personally encounter Jesus Christ.
Discovering Christ is for anyone and everyone, from the baptized in
the pews to the unbaptized who has never entered a church!
• Helps participants enter into or renew a personal relationship with
Jesus Christ, experience the love of God the Father, and be
empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as God’s children.
• Gives participants the relational support necessary to begin living
for Christ within the parish or group that offers the course.
The Discovering Christ course will begin Tuesday, September 22, 2015 in
the Parish Hall. A simple dinner is included as part of the program. More
information will be available in upcoming bulletins or you may call the
Office of Adult Faith Formation at 301–774–0162.
19th Annual Ecumenical Collection of School Supplies
The Ecumenical Collection of School Supplies is a terrific opportunity

our community. Your donations are particularly important for families
facing economic challenges.
Saint Peter’s Parish will collect for Sequoyah and Cashell Elementary
Schools and Farquhar Middle School.
