New Archdiocesan Volunteer Policies

The Archdiocese has recently updated their Child Protection policies and has re-instituted fingerprinting for all volunteers, meaning that all current and future volunteers (even if currently cleared under the old non-fingerprinting policy) must be fingerprinted.  St. Mary Church, Newport is offering FREE on-site fingerprinting for all those who serve in the following ministries: Members of the Social Concerns Committee, CCD Staff/Volunteers, Eucharistic Ministers, Altar Server Trainers, and Volunteers of the Good Shepherd Food Pantry.

The on-site fingerprinting will take place Saturday, August 24, upstairs in the St. Francis Hall, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. For anyone not able to attend on August 24, there will be one make-up session on Saturday, September 21, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. For additional information, please call the parish office at 301-934-8825.

Prayer for Priests

Dear God,
“…we lift up all priests:
May they, through the modesty
and humility of their lives,
commit themselves actively to
a solidarity with those who are
the most poor.
