This weekend we are asking all Catholics in the diocese to prayerfully discern our Bishop’s request to assist him financially in the annual BLA drive.  We will walk through the process of filling out envelops at all the Masses next weekend.  Today I’m asking you to consider how you can help.  I have included a QR code you can use if you want to start early or you can do what I did and text BLA to 703-260-9800.  By texting you will be given a link that will take you right to a pledge page to make your contribution, it was very easy to do.  Thank you in advance for help in this and God bless you.
