It's been a hard year for many of our neighbors. Family emergencies and work closures due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic continue to take a toll on working families, like Shannon's. But because of the generosity of our friends and Catholic Diocese of Arlington parishioners, Shannon and her family got the help they needed after they fell behind on their rent. That means they'll be celebrating Christmas in the place they love the most: home.

With the generous help of Catholic Diocese of Arlington parishes, we're making sure families who come to our pantries this Advent will have everything they need for a festive Christmas dinner. At Christ House in Old Town Alexandria, staff and volunteers will be distributing donated frozen turkey or chicken, along with 210 Christmas boxes - or 2,702 pounds of all the trimmings for Christmas dinner.
The food boxes were collected, loaded into cars and trucks, delivered and hauled by Cathedral of St. Thomas More's Knights of Columbus #6790, the parish Women's Council and parishioners. Along with the dinner, pantry recipients will receive sweatshirts and other gifts to make their holiday more festive.
We're so grateful to Fr. Patrick Posey and all the Knights, Women's Club members and parishioners at STM who supported this annual effort.

As pandemic slows, Catholic Charities reports growing need for rent, utility aid

“It’s a slow but steady and building crisis, and it is predicted to continue growing. If there was a giant surge, it might make the front page, but this is the kind of slowly building crisis that escapes notice until it’s too big to ignore.”
_ Catherine Hassinger, Catholic Charities Director of Community Services.

Many people are back to work after pandemic-related layoffs, but financial struggles continue for families in Northern Virginia, say diocesan Catholic Charities staffers who are still getting a flood of requests for emergency rent and utility assistance.

Bishop Burbidge continued his Thanksgiving Eve tradition and joined volunteers at Christ House in Old Town Alexandria, serving a hot evening meal to go to homeless and in need women and men.

Saint Luke Catholic Church volunteers Yvonne and Rick Kicklighter and their daughter Sabrina teamed up with Chef Cai Lyn Blakeman, husband Bruce and daughter Samantha to cook and pack in to-go boxes ham, veggies, and potatoes au gratin. Fruit, apple pie and water rounded out the meal.

Guests also received Thanksgiving bags donated by parishes and community groups loaded with treats, personal care items and warm scarves and gloves.

Call us thankful! It was a beautiful day and a great way to welcome newcomers to their first American Thanksgiving!
Today our Migration and Refugee Services staff teamed up with staff and volunteers from St. Mary Fredericksburg, VA for a drive-thru distribution of Thanksgiving meals with all the trimmings to 100 Afghan refugee families.
Each family received a Halal chicken as well as a box lovingly packed by St. Mary's folks containing mashed potatoes, stuffing, cans of green beans, sweet potatoes/yams, mixed vegetables, corn and cranberries, gravy, dessert and aluminum foil and disposable roasting pans to pull the dinner together.
Said one client, Mr. Sherzad: “We are so happy to receive food and happy Thanksgiving!”

Reunited and it feels so good! Games, a neighborhood walk, lunch, a cooking class, and lots of fun and fellowship - all this and more awaited 20 senior this week when we safely re-opened our St. Martin de Porres Senior Center, which serves Alexandria residents in partnership with the city.
The center closed in March 2020 due to the coronavirus. It became the first senior center in Alexandria to re-open to a limited capacity as part of an Alexandria city pilot.
"We give thanks to Catholic Charities and Alexandria government who made (the re-opening) a reality benefitting the world's elder community regardless their belief and ethnicity," said Tseggai Gide, in a letter he read to his friends at the center.

St. Martin's staff and friends paid tribute to the 10 friends who passed away during the year-and-a-half absence. "We have been separated for so long time due to the Covid19 pandemic. For sure, some of us may have left forever," Gide said.
