"We attain grace for ourselves and for others through our humble prayers, our mortification, and our faithfulness in the fulfillment of our daily duties, including the most simple ones...Therefore, the value of every [community] depends only and absolutely on our life of prayer, on our interior life, on our personal closeness to the Immaculate and, through her, to the Heart of Jesus."-St. Maximilian Kolbe

It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness. He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satisfied you. He is the beauty to which you are so attracted...It is Jesus who stirs in you the desire to do something great with your lives, the will to follow an ideal, the refusal to allow yourselves to be ground down by mediocrity..."-Pope Saint John Paul II

The Arlington Diocese is blessed to welcome 13 new seminarians into formation towards the priesthood, including St. Louis's very own, Ryan Farrell.

Thanks to Ryan for all of his hard work and commitment to St. Louis Catholic Church this past year as the former Director of Youth Formation.

He wore many hats in the formation of our youth from serving as stakeholder for WorkCamp to preparing children in the RE program for receiving the sacraments.

We will miss seeing him regularly at the parish but, will keep him in our prayers as he continues to follow God's will for his life.

We are excited to announce the Diocese has 13 new seminarians this year! Bishop Burbidge shares in his latest podcast, β€œThis is the result of God’s grace, good families, and the prayers of so many in our diocese who pray for an increase in vocations.” #ArlingtonVocations

Happy Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel!
.
.
.
Today parishioner's at the 8:45am Mass enrolled in the Brown Scapular--a devotion started by a Carmelite by the name of St. Simon Stock in 1251.
.
.
.
Our Lady appeared to him and handed him a woolen scapular making the promise that "whosoever dies in this garment shall not suffer eternal fire. It shall be a sign of salvation, a protection in danger and pledge of peace."
.
.
.
The devotion of wearing the Brown Scapular gives us the opportunity at every moment of every day to entrust ourselves to her intercession.πŸ™

"I have attended two Steubenville Youth Conferences: Main Campus 5 in 2017 and Main Campus 5 in 2018! I remember not knowing what to expect the first time. I was honestly just excited to get out of my house for a weekend.
.
.
.
I didn’t know it when I signed up, but that weekend would radically change my life.
.
.
.
Before attending I thought Catholicism was boring and something only older people could relate to.
.
.
.
Upon arriving I was shocked to see thousands of teens who unapologetically loved their faith.
.
.
.
It was the first time in my life when I wasn’t mocked for my faith but rather I was lovingly encouraged by everyone around me. It’s important that I mention that I was not the β€œtype” of teen to attend a conference like this. I say β€œtype” because there truly is no type of person-everyone belongs and everyone is welcome. I was not active in my faith at all, and I worried that I wouldn’t fit in. I was warmly welcomed and quickly Steubenville became my safe haven and happy place.
.
.
.
I was able to encounter Christ like never before, and for that I am eternally grateful!
.
.
.
I never knew a single weekend could change and strengthen my faith so much.
.
.
.
I have never heard of anyone who regretted attending, so if you are considering attending, do it!"-Mariah, Grade 12

As we celebrate Father's Day, let us thank God for the gift of fatherhood and for the fathers who give of themselves each day for their families. May this witness inspire their children to grow closer to the Lord and live up to their potential. St. Joseph, pray for us! - Bishop Burbidge

[06/05/19]   In a little over a month, St. Louis Youth Ministry will be taking a group of teens to the Steubenville Youth Conference. We still have 9 OPEN SPOTS! If you're a high schooler we would love for you to consider joining us!

Our Assistant Director of Youth Formation, Alice, shares a little bit about her own experience attending Steubenville Youth Conferences. Check it out⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️
.
.
.
"I've had the privilege of attending six conferences in three different locations--five in Florida and one in Atlanta! I attended one after my freshman, sophomore, junior, and senior years of high school and then came as a volunteer and a chaperone. They were an incredible opportunity to build LASTING FRIENDSHIPS with other Catholic youth whom I am still friends with to this day! It was a huge INSPIRATION to see the speakers and musicians share about their FAITH and invite us to PRAY with them throughout the weekend. It was the first time I had experienced seeing so many priests and religious sisters in one room! I understood a little bit more about who I was as a BELOVED daughter of GOD who desired nothing more than to be with me! It was through a life-changing weekend of SACRAMENTS, prayer, talks, ADORATION, laughter, meals, community, and rest that I felt inspired and empowered to go back out into the world to live as an AUTHENTIC and radical WITNESS of my CATHOLIC faith! I can't wait to go back for a seventh time with St. Louis in July!"-Alice, Assistant Director of Youth Formation

"...it is important to shed the light of the risen Lord upon our problems. Let us not allow darkness and fear to distract us and control us; we must cry out to them: the Lord is not here, but has risen! He is our greatest joy; He is always at our side and will never let us down."-Pope Francis
β€’
β€’
β€’
Cry out to God in your fears, worries, distractions, frustrations, tiredness, longings, desires, and waiting, for the Lord is not there in those things. He has risen!
