Adult Faith Formation, Service, & Events

The Shrine offers a wide array of spiritual events to enrich your soul.  Shrine staff guides parishioners through Bible Studies, Book Discussions, and RCIA classes.  Speakers are brought in several times a year to discuss a range of topics related to the Catholic faith. Parishioners run prayer groups and other service based ministries such as the Social Justice Outreach which is responsible for food and supply collections for the area non-profits.  View our Calendar of Events or List of Upcoming Events to find a place to meet us.


Children & Youth

Our Children and Youth programs are passionately energetic.  The CFC Youth, one of the largest Filipino Catholic programs in Maryland is quite possibly THE most active group in our Parish.  Alongside the CFC Youth activities, parish children aged 4 and older can participate in Children's Liturgy of the Word during 9am and 11:30 masses and Pre-K to 4th grade students can join the Religious Education and sacrament formation programs.
