Parish Lunch Line

On the third Sunday of every month, we gather in the parish kitchen to make sandwiches for clients of Northern Virginia Family Service's Bailey's Crossroads shelter. Join us Sunday, February 17 at 11:30 a.m. We work for about 45 minutes to assemble and package sandwiches with the supplies we have on hand. All are welcome to come help out for as much time as you can spare. We are always accepting donations of lunch meat, cheese, and bread.

OWLS March Gathering

The OWLS (Older, Wiser, Laughing Souls) will meet on Thursday, March 7 for a brown bag lunch at 11:30 to be followed by a talk by Doug Strait on the progress of technologies that are increasingly changing our lives.  We will discuss the timing and impact those technologies, including Artificial Intelligence, the Spatial Web, Autonomous Transportation, Robotics and others, will have on our everyday lives.  As Doug says “Strap on your seat belt for a fascinating ride into the future.”
