WHO WE ARE

About Our Church Community

My Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Welcome to Medhane Alem Ge’ez rite Eritrean Catholic Community website. Thank you for visiting the website which is designed to give you some idea of all that goes on within our Community of faith, hope and love.
Medhane Alem Ge’ez rite Eritrean Catholic Community is a Catholic Christian community nestled at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Annandale Virginia. It was established under the Diocese of Arlington in 2014. It is blessed with members that are dedicated to the Greater Glory of God with their worship, ministries and Apostolic activities in the community.

Obviously the highlights of any family of faith are the Liturgies which gather us together to celebrate God's gift of Word and Sacrament. Know that you are most welcome to come and experience us at our best as we celebrate together the life and love of our God mingled with our own.

Over and above the Liturgies are so many other opportunities to draw us together spiritually, socially and in service. We invite you to look through the website to see what might be of interest to you in further involving yourself in our family of faith.

Any ways we can be of further help to you, please do not hesitate to contact us through this website or by phoning and we will be happy to assist you any way that we can.

We do look forward to having you as a member of our Medhane Alem Ge’ez rite Eritrean Catholic Community.
