What is FaithWalk?  Pax Christi Parishioners are on a journey. FaithWalk is our Faith Formation for all ages as we walk one another through life to a deeper understanding of our relationship with God and each other.

Dear Pax Christi Family,

We have opened enrollment for the 2021-2022 Children's Faithwalk.  We will be starting on September 12 at 9:45 with a Meet and Greet for parents and children in the classrooms. 

Classes are held Sundays 9:45-10:45 am for children from Pre-K (3 years old) through 8th grade. The safety of all will be our first priority and we will follow the diocesan directive of mask wearing. 

We are also looking for additional helpers in the classrooms especially in Pre-K and 6th grade.

If you would like to enroll your child or grandchild, there are registration forms in the Gathering Space of the church, or you can contact Gloria Becker at paxcre@cdlex.org or 301-908-4359. Completed forms can be turned in after weekend masses at the display or brought to the Meet and Greet on September 12. 

In Christ's Peace,

Gloria Becker

At all four Masses on the weekend of August 21, 22 and 23, we will offer the Sacrament of Anointing for all who wish to be anointed

The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick can be given for many different circumstances; before a surgery, after a serious diagnosis, or for a chronic condition. When celebrated as a group of people showing their support to one another, the sacrament can be a moving and healing experience of the presence of the Holy Spirit, “the Lord and Giver of Life.”

The Covid virus, the subsequent quarantines, restrictions and requirements have affected us all. I have repeatedly referred to this as a traumatic time. I know that many of us, even if we never contacted the virus, have been affected either physically, emotionally or spiritually. I know I have been.

Therefore, I think it is appropriate to offer the Sacrament of Anointing to all at all the Masses. We will have guest priests present to help the anointing go quickly and smoothly. The prayers of the rite will be celebrated at the end of each Mass before the closing music. Then, as people leave church they can present themselves to one of the priests who are present for the actual anointing.

If you feel that you have suffered in any way during these months, I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to place your needs before the Lord and receive His healing of strength and peace.

HOW CAN I MAKE DONATIONS? 

 SENDING FUNDS THROUGH YOUR OWN BANK:   Most financial institutions do not charge the giver or the receiver for sending checks through online bill pay.  Did you know that you can set up Automatic Giving to Pax Christi just like you pay your bills? Use your envelope number as your account number. It’s easy and continues until you want to change it!

MAILING YOUR PERSONAL CHECK:  In the monthly envelope packet you will find an envelope that is suitable for mail.  

Please do not mail cash!

REGULAR WEEKLY COLLECTION:  If you wish you can drop your envelope in the baskets near the exit doors of church after Mass or in the same baskets anytime throughout the week from 9 a.m—2 p.m. 

Online giving through Vanco is also available! 

Go to paxchristilex.org

1. At the bottom of the home page—click on the green “Donate” tab

2. Create your online profile.  (Please remember your online ID & Password as we will not have access to those.) 

3. Please note:  The online provider does charge the Parish a transaction fee when donating through our website.  Many parishioners choose to offset this fee by increasing the amount of their donation to help cover those fees.
