Merry Christmas at Christ House

Dear Brothers,

Today, after church, our AOH Crew ( McCarthys, Rileys and Kilday) dropped off food and St. Mary ornaments to  Christ House Shelter. Our Division also provided the Christmas tree to Christ House for their lobby. Sr. Annie was grateful as usual and wished you all blessings and a Merry Christmas.





Wreaths Across America


It was a humbling experience to lay wreaths at Arlington Cemetery last weekend.  It is a good service project that reminds us that not all can be home for the holidays.  Some photos honoring Washington Parke-Custis and President JFK are attached, and I hope we can get many volunteers to assist with the pick-up of the wreaths on 20 JAN. With thousands of volunteers, it is easier to take the metro, or to drive and park at FT Myer if you have access.

Merry Christmas!

Sucessful Ornaments Sales

Brother Kilday was “King of Sales”.  Pictured below is the “night” crew with flashlights.  Great work everyone selling ornaments the past few months.  We sold approximately 250 ornaments.  Some of the ornaments were given to the St. Mary Parish Office staff. The remaining ornaments were donated to the Daughters of St. Paul Religious Sisters at Pauline’s Bookstore.
