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.
Because the feast of our Lady of Mount Carmel falls on a Sunday this year, the liturgy for the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time takes precedence.
All Masses on July 12th will be celebrated in honor of St. Veronica. Coffee and pastry reception will follow the 8:30 am Mass.
There will only be one Mass on July 4th. There will be no 12:15 pm Mass. The parish office will be closed.
On Sunday, June 18th we celebrate the feast of Corpus Christi when we give thanks to God in a special way for the gift of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. As has been the custom at St. Veronica, we will host a Eucharistic Procession immediately following the 10:45 am Mass. Altar servers, all First Communicants in their First Communion garb and all parishioners and guests are invited to join us as we process (weather permitting) along the perimeter of the parish stopping along the way at two altars for prayer and adoration. In the event of inclement weather, the procession will be inside the church.
Did you know that our parish has a program for families to meet in small groups to socialize, build Christian community and foster genuine virtuous friendships? To learn more about Parish Community Circles, come to this Wine and Cheese Information Evening at 6:00 pm in the parish hall on Saturday, June 17th.
Established two years ago, the garden grows vegetables to feed the neediest in our area, with the weekly harvests taken to Catholic Charities' St. Lucy Project in Manassas. The garden apostolate would welcome volunteers to help with the many garden tasks, from watering to weeding to picking veggies. For more information, contact Sandy Greeley, email@example.com.
