Our mission is to help the parish attain its goals and missions by promoting a sense of belonging to this Christian community, and to provide opportunities for evangelization and spiritual growth through service and events within the Church as well as surrounding communities.
ONLY because our parishioners generously give to each project can we give so much. We partner with our church and many other caring groups in the Metro area that help our brothers and sisters in need throughout the year. There is a lot of planning that goes into the projects and the more hands that share the workload, the better. Look below to learn more about our projects!

During the season of Advent, the WON ministry works to help those in need have a joyful Christmas by collecting donations for various local organizations. This past year, we had over 1,500 ornaments that served many people.Learn More
The collection of candy, stuffed animals, coloring books, crayons and toys fill approximately 400 bags each year and bring joy to children serviced by many of the same organizations supported by the Back to School Supply drive which include: Catholic Charities, Salvation Army, ECHO, Lorton Community Action Center, and Carpenter Shelter.
The collection of essentials (diapers, formula, receiving blankets, etc.) for the care of babies are distributed to various crisis pregnancy centers in NoVA as well as Nativity’s Stella Marina project.
We collect items the first weekend in June.
This is WON’s only fundraiser. Proceeds cover WON’s annual operating costs and emerging needs. A generous portion of the proceeds are distributed in May to organizations in need within our parish and the local community based on the approval of the membership. The list changes from year to year.
We sell the ornaments every year in September.
