Join us for Brunch and Secrets of Animal Symbolism in Religious Artwork
Saturday, July 14
We hope you will join us for our third Summer Series Event on Saturday, July 14. Beat the heat and join fellow parishioners for fun, food, and fellowship. Brunch will be provided and Penny Morrill will immerse us in the incredible world of animal symbolism and its meaning within religious artwork throughout the ages. It’s sure to be a fascinating spiritual "safari" for kids and adults alike.
This event is open to ALL. Come on your own, or bring friends or family. If you'd like to make a small donation to benefit the Wildlife Conservation Network, you can click HERE or donate in person, but nothing is required to attend.
Kids are requested to bring their favorite stuffed animal!
Please R.s.v.p. HERE if you're able so we can plan. If not, please drop on by anyway! We look forward to seeing you on July 14!

A Visit to the Museum of the Bible
Wednesday, July 18 at 10:45 am
Interested in joining the excursion? Please contact Greg Dole through the Parish Office at 703-356-4902.
The Museum of the Bible documents the narrative, history, and impact of the Bible on mankind. The museum opened on November 17, 2017. With 1,150 items from the museum's permanent collection and 2,000 items on loan from other institutions and collections, the museum has much to explore. The museum claims to have amassed one of the largest groupings of biblical artifacts and texts in the world through collaborations with private donors, institutions, and other museums.
On July 18, the Fellowship and Adult and Education Committees are planning a visit to the Museum of the Bible to see, among other things, the museum’s current exhibit, Jerusalem and Rome—Cultures and Context in the First Century Rome. We will be able to enjoy the cuisine—prepared at one of two restaurants (around 1:30 pm)—mixed with our own scintillating conversation about what we have seen and experienced in the museum.
We plan to drive by car in groups (and not on a bus), so ask who will be going and wants to drive with you. We will meet at the St. John's parking lot at 10:45 am and leave at 11:00 am to see this magnificent museum. There is garage parking nearby as well as two-hour street parking which begins at 7:00 am.
