“Necessary emphasis should be placed on the 'genius of women', not only by considering great and famous women of the past or present, but also those ordinary women who reveal the gift of their womanhood by placing themselves at the service of others in their everyday lives. For in giving themselves to others each day women fulfill their deepest vocation. Perhaps more than men, women acknowledge the person, because they see persons with their hearts.”
Saint John Paul II
Letter to Women, 1995

Women of St. John's

We invite all the women of the parish to be a part of Women of St. John's, a movement to identify and develop all of our many charisms and talents and use them in a variety of easy, practical and love-filled ways. Through social events, service and spiritual activities throughout the year, our hope is to benefit our parish, each other and the greater community through friendship among the generations. 

To receive news on upcoming activities, text wosje to 84576 or contact Betty Brown at 301-335-5810 or Regina McDermott at 301-585-0124.

Monthly Meals
Every month, we gather for either lunch or dinner at an inexpensive local restaurant. The monthly meal is a great way to meet new friends and strengthen ongoing relationships.

Bimonthly Meetings
Organizational meetings are held every other month in the Kennedy Room, allowing women to discuss upcoming plans and events.

Annual Coat and Blanket Collection
Our first annual coat and blanket was held in February 2014. We collected over 90 new or gently used coats for men, women and children and more than 30 blankets. These coats and blankets were donated to Fr. Michael Briese's community outreach and parish pantry at Holy Name Parish in northeast DC; the Spanish Catholic Center in Wheaton; and Shepherd's Table in Silver Spring.

Oración de un evangelista

Señor Jesús, que quiere que nos convirtamos en una fuerza viva para toda la humanidad, las luces brillando en el mundo. Quiere que seamos luces radiantes como estamos a tu lado, la gran luz, bañado en tu gloria, oh Luz del Cielo. Vamos a disfrutar más y más la luz pura y deslumbrante de la Santísima Trinidad, como ahora que hemos recibido, aunque no en su plenitud, un rayo de su esplendor, que procede del único y verdadero Dios, en Cristo Jesús, nuestro Señor, a quien sea la gloria y el poder por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.

-St. Gregorio Naciancino (330-390)
