“One expression of this attitude [of Jesus] is when we stop and give thanks to God before and after meals. I ask all believers to return to this beautiful and meaningful custom. That moment of blessing, however brief, reminds us of our dependence on God for life; it strengthens our feeling of gratitude for the gifts of creation; it acknowledges those who by their labours provide us with these goods; and it reaffirms our solidarity with those in greatest need.”
Pope Francis
Laudato Si', #227
COMMUNITY: Living His Communion Together


The life of communion lived together at St. Jerome's offers each parishioner an experience of the Lord's hospitality of the heart.

Sunday Fellowship: Join us after the 8:30AM and 10:30AM Masses in the Gold Room for coffee and donuts. It is good to gather and welcome new friends and greet old friends on Sunday morning. Volunteers are always needed to help set up for fellowship and clean up. It will only take a minute or two...thanks in advance for your help!

Feed the Turtle! St. Jerome's occasionally provides a Wednesday night meal to students at University of Maryland's Catholic Student Center. Watch the bulletin and this space for upcoming dates. Thanks to all who nurture our Catholic neighbors and perform this corporal work of mercy!
