We were so grateful to Catholic Diocese of Arlington Bishop Michael Burbidge and the volunteers from Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church who recently helped distribute (safely) meals-to-go at Christ House, Old Town Alexandria.

Since the coronavirus pandemic arrived here in March, we've had to modify how we serve those in need, including Christ House's sit-down Evening Meal, which relies on volunteers to make and serve the meal and has taken place 365 days a year since it began in 1974.

Parishes and other community groups make and bag the meal, and it is distributed across a table and out a back door to neighbors in need.

Bishop Burbidge helped volunteers Mary Kilkenny and Ann Corro, and a regular neighborhood volunteer assemble and hand out the hot dinner, water and a breakfast meal kit for the next day to the 35 homeless men and women, who lined up on the sidewalk.

Earlier that day Kilkenny, Corro and other Blessed Sacrament volunteers had met up at the church to make the burritos (pork carnitas or vegetable with beans and rice)). The meal also included oranges or bananas and watermelon, chips, and water.

Friendly conversation followed as the volunteers and Bishop Burbidge handed out the meals to the men and women in line. He asked each guest how they were doing and listened as some shared details about their lives. He assured them of his prayers.
“Stay safe and healthy,” he said. “God bless you!”

Catholic Diocese of Arlington Bishop Burbidge met last week with staff and formerly homeless families who are now living at our St. Margaret of Cortona Transitional Family and Maternity Housing program in Woodbridge.

St. Margaret's, which has provided a transformational program for homeless mothers with children since 2009, expanded its services in January to include a maternity program for single expectant mothers.

On his tour of the 12-apartment facility, Bishop Burbidge had the chance to talk with mothers about their lives and experiences, and offer them encouragement and prayers.

The programs provide safe, comfortable housing to mothers with children or expectant mothers who've been through exceptionally difficult circumstances, including homelessness and domestic violence. Residents participate in workforce development, life skills including financial literacy and budgeting, parenting training, and intensive case management. The program aims to increase each residents prospects for long-term financial independence and sustained ability to find and keep a home.

“This is so uplifting for me to see the work that’s being done, to hear the difference you’re making in people’s lives,” Bishop Burbidge told St. Margaret program director Veronica Roth and her staff who gathered with him after a tour of the facility. “This is a sacred place. Thanks for being effective instruments of God’s love.”

The maternity program works with Catholic Charities Pregnancy and Adoption Support to provide counseling and other services.

The program currently has nine mothers and 22 children who will live there for up to two years. Ninety-four adults and 214 children have lived at St. Margaret’s since it began. Learn more here: https://www.ccda.net/need-help/housing/family-housing-(st--margaret)/

Please help Good Shepherd Catholic Church as they labor to collect nonperishable food this Friday, Sept 4th from 10 AM - 2 PM.

Who doesn't get excited when the Amazon truck pulls up at their front door? At the St. Lucy Food Project Warehouse in Manassas we sure do!
That truck full of packages means our friends have taken time to order food we then can distribute to one of the 63 food pantries we supply throughout Catholic Diocese of Arlington.
Right now, the need is especially great for food for kids from families struggling to get by. Many of these children are learning virtually instead of going to the classroom - which means they're not getting the free hot lunch at school that they used to.
Please take a look at our wish list. God will bless your generosity! https://www.ccda.net/SLPAmazonWishList
