Our next meeting will be held

in the Knight's Room
 below Mercy Hall

Friday, August 11 at 7pm

Our newest book is Strangers in a Strange Land: Living the Catholic Faith in a Post-Christian World by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput.

The Archbishop of Los Angeles has called this “an important book about the most important questions . . . [and a] must-read for Catholics and anyone concerned for America's future.” 

The Wall Street Journal says that Archbishop Chaput is "erudite and eloquent . . . and [that] his book should be read by serious-minded people of whatever religious, partisan or intellectual inclination." 

The Most Reverend Robert Barron “warmly recommend[s] this text to anyone interested in the play between faith and culture.”

The Arlington Diocese Office of Vocations presents



"To know your vocation: ask God in prayer; ask one's spiritual director; ask oneself, knowing one's own inclinations."

 - St. Gianna Molla


Click on the logos to visit the Diocesan Vocational pages.

"Quo Vadis" means "Where are you going?" and its members are young men in high school who desire to grow in faithful discipleship and personal holiness to be better able to discover their own vocation invitation from our Lord, whatever that might be.

''FIAT' is a Latin word for 'Let it be done'. It was Mary's response to the angel Gabriel when she was asked to become the mother of Jesus. 'Let it be done unto me according to Your Will' refers to Mary's 'Yes' to God. The members of FIAT are young women in high school who desire to grow in faithful discipleship by modeling their personal holiness on that of our Lady. By doing so they hope to be better able to discover their own vocation invitation from our Lord, whatever that might be and make their own "fiat" or "yes" to Him.
