Every year, through the generosity of St. Veronica parish, students in Madison, Culpepper, and Rappahannock Counties are able to start the school year with needed school supplies. The Saint Teresa Outreach Apostolate will be collecting your generous donations after Masses on through July 30th. The list of needed supplies is on the flyer linked below. Please drop off school supplies in the marked wooden boxes located in the north and south vestibules. Please bring monetary donations, gift cards or debit cards to the parish office. You may also purchase through an online wish list using the link provided in the flyer, which can be downloaded HERE. God bless you for your generosity.
Saints are a beloved part of the Faith for many. Many children's first prayers are to their name saints or to Our Lady. Yet this can cause division with other Christians. How can we explain this to them and so share this treasure? Come join the Patricians on August 14th as we discuss the saints and how to explain them to non-Catholics. We meet in the St. John Paul II Room at 7:00 pm. Snacks are provided.
In 2005 Pope Benedict XVI encouraged all Catholics to put into practice the "JPII Method" when praying the Rosary. Unfortunately, few know this method. This will change now with Third Order Dominican Robert Feeney's book, The Rosary: The John Paul II Method, newly revised and in its second edition. The author will be in the parish hall following all Sunday morning Masses on May 7th to sign copies of his book, which will be available for $5.00 purchase.
The St. Veronica Youth Orchestra is holding auditions for the spring semester on Monday, January 30th from 4:00-6:00 pm. If this time does not work for you, arrangements can be made for separate auditions. Please contact our Music Director/Organist, Emily Mason, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by the organ after Mass if you are interested. The orchestra plays four times a year for special feast day Masses at 9:00 am, as well as spring and fall concerts. No prior experience playing for Mass or in a group is needed. The group is open to grades 5-12. Rehearsals are Thursdays, 5:45-7:00 pm.
There will also be a 9:00 pm Holy Mass in Vietnamese.
