  • As Franciscan parish, St. Camillus embraces care for creation
    Each year at the March for Life, the youth of St. Camillus Parish in Silver Spring carry a banner that reads “Choose Life,” with words like abortion, death penalty, injustice and environmental degradation all crossed out. “We are very proud of our consistently pro-life banner,” said Father Jacek Orzechowski, a Franciscan priest at St. Camillus Parish. “...Care for creation, justice, respect for life [all] really fit together. They are part the seamless garment, a consistent ethic of life.” 
  • Cardinal Wuerl dedicates new altar at St. John the Evangelist
    “It is a day of rejoicing,” said Donald Cardinal Wuerl at the consecration of a new parish altar in Clinton, Maryland on Sunday, May 17. “May all who have come today and all to come who will celebrate at this altar be unified in [God’s] peace.” 
  • 10 ways one parish is going green and saving money
    Father Peter Daly, pastor of St. John Vianney Parish in Prince Frederick, has found that caring for creation is not only an important part of a living faith, but going green often saves the church money in the long run. “A lot of people think environmentalism is about feeling warm and fuzzy about the environment; it’s about actually looking at the hard facts of our energy consumption and realizing there’s a better way to do this,” he explained. 
  • Faith in Action:
    I couldn’t be more excited about how the Walk with Francis Pledge is taking off. The Archdiocese of Washington has begun this effort as a way to help us prepare for Pope Francis’ visit and, even more importantly, draw closer to God as individuals and as a community. The early response has been uplifting – and not just here in Washington but in other places as well. We’ve heard from the Arlington Diocese, Brooklyn, New York, Catholic Charities USA, and many others that have joined us or are thinking about it. 
  • Prayer for Every Moment (Prayer 2, Part II)
    Our study of prayer began with the recognition that the Church speaks of the general types of prayer – adoration, petition, contrition, thanksgiving and praise.  In this article we will find a brief definition of the specific kinds of prayer as they are described in the Catechism. 
  • Students help freedom ring across National Mall
    On a sunny, windy day in March, the students of St. Jerome Academy in Hyattsville stood in the shadow of the Washington Monument and patriotically told the story of American history through recited speeches and poems, acting and musical accompaniment.
