To foster an understanding and sharing of Christ's message

Mission: Visit our webpage: www.ctrcc.org Our Mission: Founded in the good news of Christ that "God so loved the world that he gave (us) his only Son" (Jn 3:16) and knowing that He (Christ) "came that we might have life - life in all fullness" (Jn 10:10) and rooted in Jesus' command to "Love one another as I have loved you" (Jn 13:34), we the members of Christ the Redeemer Parish commit ourselves: To foster an understanding and sharing of Christ's message; To celebrate the glory of God in liturgy which recognizes our diversity and calls us to oneness in God's presence; To challenge the faithful to respond to Christ's call to meet the needs of all people with compassion and charity.

A nice reminder this time of year and time of change.

A Statement from Daniel Cardinal DiNardo

“At its core, asylum is an instrument to preserve the right to life. The Attorney General's recent decision elicits deep concern because it potentially strips asylum from many women who lack adequate protection. These vulnerable women will now face return to the extreme dangers of domestic violence in their home country.”

Our Deepest Thoughts and Prayers for The 17 Year Old Youth Sister and Family

We are devastated and heartbroken as our community undergoes and processes this traumatic event. It is a time for us to come together to pray and care for our youth.
In the Islamic tradition, it is reported that the Beloved Prophet Muhammad said, "There are three supplications that are never rejected, the supplication of the parent for their child, the supplication of the person who is fasting, and the supplication of a traveler." We ask all community members to sincerely pray for our dear daughter, sister, and friend.

ADAMS has licensed counselors on site to assist anyone in need of counseling during these difficult times.

Please contact ADAMS at 703-433-1325 to see one of the licensed counselors.

ADAMS will continue with its daily and nightly Ramadan prayers. This is a time we all need to come together to collectively heal.

Imam Mohamed Magid, ADAMS Executive Imam, will address the community at prayers tonight.

See below for the ADAMS' press release regarding this tragedy.

ADAMS Media Statement

On Sunday, June 18th 2017, at approximately 4 a.m., according to Fairfax County Police, a dispute occurred between a group of teens who were walking along Dranesville Road in Sterling and a man driving a car. It appears the man got out of his car and assaulted one of them, a 17-year-old girl. Community members came across the group and directed them to ADAMS Center. Immediately thereafter, the ADAMS' personnel notified both Loudon County and Fairfax County authorities who immediately began an extensive search to locate the missing girl.

The search continued until around 3 p.m. when the body of a female was found in a pond in Sterling. The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will conduct an autopsy to confirm the identity of the body and determine the exact cause and manner of death.

The joint county investigation has led to an individual being taken into custody as a suspect. Charges are pending further investigation. We thank both Fairfax County Police and Loudoun County Sheriff's departments for their diligent efforts in investigating and apprehending a suspect. We call on law enforcement to investigate and determine the motive of this crime and prosecute to the full extent of the law.

The Suspect has been charged with Murder

For further questions, we ask that you please contact the Fairfax County Police Media Relations Bureau, 703-246-2253. Due to the nature of the ongoing investigation we have been advised not to discuss this matter further.
