It was still a little chilly last weekend when a hearty crew of Christ House pantry volunteers from local parishes and other churches showed up in the garden behind our Old Town Alexandria location to work in gardening soil, plant tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, lettuce and herbs, and spread mulch.
But before they picked up a shovel they started the day with prayer led by Deacon Mike O'Neil of Good Shepherd Catholic Church (Virginia).
As growing season continues, it won't be long until we can harvest the produce to share at our food pantry, evening meal, or the residents who live at Christ House.

Kala's story: Healing and embracing a better way forward at St. Margaret of Cortona

At St. Margaret of Cortona Maternity and Transitional Home for Families we’ve been helping mothers and their families for more than a decade. We provide a safe home for formerly homeless moms and their children, and assist them as they process past trauma, learn parenting, budgeting and financial skills, and make progress in their job path. Learn more about how we support mothers by watching Kayla's story. Catholic Diocese of Arlington Arlington Catholic Herald #LoveOurMothers

Many a day our staff at St. Margaret of Cortona Maternity and Transitional Housing for Families wonder: where would we be without our go-to handymen/lawn movers/moving guys/volunteers extraordinaire St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Lake Ridge parishioners and Knights Paul Zerkow and Kevin Tamai?

The two longtime volunteers - who have plenty of other ways to spend their busy lives - have saved St. Margaret's thousands of dollars in maintenance costs over the years, allowing us to spend those limited funds on other necessary needs. More importantly, when our resident moms call with clogged toilets or broken dishwashers or baby gates that need to be installed - Paul and Kevin have come to the rescue, making all of our families know they are loved and cared for.

Because of their dedication, Paul and Kevin were named St. Margaret of Cortona Volunteers of the Year, and were also nominated for that annual award for Catholic Charities USA. This week, our St. Margaret team and Catholic Charities staff honored them in a special outdoor ceremony.
We're so grateful for Paul and Kevin's constant, dedicated service for our moms and children, as well as the backing of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton's pastor, Fr. Brian Bashista and Knight Council 8183 and Grand Master John Maher.

As #NationalVolunteerMonth comes to a close we celebrate one of our longest serving volunteers Dennis Godfrey who has volunteered to serve at our Loudoun Regional Office for two decades! Not only has Dennis deployed his skills as an economist to help us make sure we’re operating efficiently and reaching those in need, he’s also brought his vast relationship-building gifts to Catholic Charities St. Lucy Food Project and Emergency Assistance program. These have helped us form partnerships throughout Loudoun County to better serve the poor and vulnerable. Through those partnerships Dennis was recently awarded the 2021 Outstanding Senior Volunteer and the 2021 Judy Hines Service of a Lifetime Award. #FindYourJoy

What a great day! On Friday, Catholic Diocese of Arlington Bishop Michael Burbidge joined Catholic Charities President and CEO Stephen Carattini and officially opened and blessed our new Loudoun Regional Office (LRO) and food pantry in Sterling.
The offices moved to Sterling from Leesburg earlier this year to respond to the great need in that area for food. In addition to the food pantry, the LRO offers rent and utility assistance, and has offices for pregnancy and adoption support and legal services for immigrants and refugees.
We're so grateful for the support of our local clergy, including four who were on hand: St. Theresa Catholic Church parochial vicar Fr. Nicholas Barnes; Our Lady of Hope Catholic Church pastor Fr. Anthony Killian; Corpus Christi Catholic Church pastor Fr. Michael Taylor; and St. Francis De Sales Catholic Church pastor Fr. James Gould.

Meet multi-helpful multi-tasker volunteer Mary Ann Kaahanui. In 2017, Mary Ann started helping us set up and decorate apartments at our St. Margaret of Cortona Maternity and Transitional Housing for Families. Since then, she joined the decorating committee for the Catholic Charities Ball, began helping distribute personal and household supplies to vulnerable rural neighbors through our Mercy Van (Mobile Response Center), and volunteering as a "food wrangler" at the St. Lucy Food Project in Manassas.
"Volunteering for these meaningful programs brings me a sense of fulfillment and purpose along with the delight of working with so many spirit filled volunteers. I have become passionate about food insecurity and love knowing that I have an integral part in providing food to those that need it," Mary Ann says.
