Lay Eucharistic Visit

Clergy are not the only ones who visit parishioners during crisis or in the happy time of a new birth. Lay ministers visit and bring the encompassing love of Christ to parishioners who are experiencing some type of crisis. They visit those in the hospital, the lonesome and homebound, those suffering bereavement, and those undergoing a long illness.

If you would like a visit, please email If you are experiencing a pastoral care emergency, call 703.549.1450 and press 3.
