St. Patrick's and St. John's have proven themselves resilient and adaptable, working intentionally and faithfully towards sharing a full-time priest together.

They've discerned carefully through sharing resources and making this a workable, happy arrangement for their priest--including moving service times. They look forward to continuing to change and grow with their next priest-in-charge.

Both parishes are small, neighborhood churches within the DC beltway about 15 minutes apart from eachother. St. Patrick's is Anglo and Vietnamese, but "Vietnamese members fluent in English translate for those who are not. Speaking Vietnamese is not necessary."




There's a possibility of a rectory (owned by St. Patrick's, Falls Church) if the priest would prefer that to housing allowance...Northern Virginia housing costs being what they are.
