CATHOLIC CHARITIES HONORS LOCAL PARISH On Feb. 7, Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington held its 38th annual ball at The Ritz–Carlton in Tysons Corner. The theme of this year’s soldout event was “With Love and Charity.”
St. Elizabeth of Hungary, Colonial Beach, and St. Anthony of Padua, King George—one parish with two communities—received the Bishop Loverde Award which honors the person, parish or organization with an extraordinary commitment to the poor.
This is the largest annual fundraiser for Catholic Charities, raising a significant portion of the resources needed to support 21 programs serving those in need throughout the 21 counties and seven cities of the Diocese.
