All flyers, leaflets, pamphlets and the likes should be left at the parish office for approval before leaving them for distribution. Those left without permission will be subject to disposal. Permission should be obtained for hanging flyers on doors and in hallways. The wall outside the parish office is the only authorized area for public postings. Parish groups should be respectful of others when setting up tables in the lobby: Please do not move or remove anything that is already in placeSaint Theresa Parish follows the Loudoun County Schools policy regarding closures due to inclement weather. Masses are celebrated as long as it is possible for the priests to reach the facilities. ALL OTHER ACTIVITIES THAT TAKE PLACE ON THE PARISH GROUNDS WILL BE CANCELLED
When you come to Mass, in the main vestibule there are cards in a holder along the wall to the school office, near the book rack. These are about the size of a half-sheet of paper and have “Diocese of Arlington Registration” on them. Take one of these, fill it out, and give it to an usher or priest, put it in the collection, or slide it under the parish office door. Alternately, visit the parish office during office hours to fill out the same form. Sorry, we do not mail these forms.WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AN “ACTIVE CATHOLIC?”
Frequently, those seeking to celebrate Marriage, have children baptized or serve as sponsors for Confirmation or Baptism request a letter stating that they are parishioners. To receive such a letter, one must be registered in the parish, attend Mass regularly, and be committed to a stewardship of time, talent and treasure. In a community as large as St. Theresa’s, one means of verifying participation is through the use of parish offertory envelopes. If you choose not to participate in the support of the parish, or are unable to contribute at this time, please at least note your prayerful support on your envelope and place it in the weekly offertory. We will then be aware of your continued participation, and you will not be noted as “inactive” on our parish roster.
