A Christian Community in the Roman Catholic Tradition



PARISH OFFICE/RECTORY: 301-894-2222, FAX: 301-894-2938

Holy Family is a Eucharist-centered, spirit-filled people who choose to form a Parish community to experience spiritual growth through life-giving liturgies in a worship space of beauty and reverence. As servant leaders, we are challenged with the Gospel values of love, compassion, and social justice.
As a Christian community, we extend hospitality and fellowship. We enrich our faith through prayer, formation, diversity of membership, attention to family life, and social ministry. We empower the faithful in bringing forth the kingdom of God and foster interfaith partnerships. We seek to deepen and grow in our commitment to being a vital church of the Archdiocese of Washington.
