Matt 25 - Donation Hiatus
Due to the renovations and re-organization in the Ministry Center, Matt 25 will NOT be accepting donations until September 15. We will be accepting fall and winter clothing donations, as well as small household items and linens, after that date.
OLQP Labor and Income Inequality Ministry Team
Have you heard about the new OLQP Labor & Income Inequality Ministry Team? In June, we brought Walmart worker activists to speak at the parish and then joined them at a labor action in DC. Our work on that issue continues. We will promote a local town hall about Walmart and income inequality. And we have many more exciting events in the pipeline, including an Interfaith Worker Justice wage theft presentation at the parish, and a presentation about how we can support restaurant workers (1/4 of whom are food insecure) as consumers and activists. Email Laura at firstname.lastname@example.org to stand with low wage workers and join this exciting new team!
Are you longing to reconnect with your faith and a small community? JustFaith is a four-phase program that uses books, videos, prayer, and conversations about the most difficult topics of the day, face-to-face encounters with the poor, and an exploration of what the Catholic tradition says about addressing injustice in our world. To learn more, come to an Information Session Wednesday, Aug. 27 at 7 p.m. in the Founders' Room. Contact: Michelle Knight, 703-979-5580.
