Bus Stop Breakfast
We will host our next Bus Stop Breakfast on March 7th from 8:00 am to about 10:00 am. Mount Calvary parishioners will prepare and serve a hot breakfast to the community outside our front doors. There is a methadone clinic across the street from the church, and many men and women who are struggling with addiction visit the clinic on Saturday mornings for treatment. We are able to serve them in a small way as we hand out egg sandwiches and hot coffee. The ministry, has brought many opportunities for deep conversation, prayer, and witness. And we hope we can continue to touch the hearts of these men and women with the love of Christ and give them hope in their struggles. Contact Abby Scharbach for details. The Knights of Malta now host the 2nd Saturday of each month while Mount Calvary (and friends) host the 1st and 3rd Saturday.

Mount Calvary Gala
Mark your calendars for our upcoming gala fundraiser for capital improvements to our beautiful church on Laetare Saturday, March 21st. See Laura Calise to help plan the event. EWTN's own Fr. Charles Connor will return to speak to us. For our theme, "A Stroll through Dublin," Fr. Connor will look at Newman's time in Ireland where he put into practice what would later become his famous Idea of the University. This Gala is an elegant way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and Laetare weekend, to celebrate the momentunm of Mount Calvary, and a way to raise awareness and commitment to support our mission. The Ordinariate is a missionary diocese without the deep pockets to fund capital improvements the way an Archdiocese like Baltimore does for its parishes. We have a very historic church building that anchors, identifies, and enables our mission, but we need help if it's going to last another 175 years. People far and wide are energized by our work, and this is a way to get more people behind it. The event is Saturday, March 21st at the beautiful Engineer's Club in Mount Vernon. Tickets can be purchased here. For more info visit the Facebook event here.
