road trip

Rocky had a rare Saturday off and decided to take me to Leesburg for a day trip. We went to Banshee Reeks Wildlife area and it's really amazing. Next we visited St. John the Evangelist. If you are in Leesburg you should go. It's the most glorious church in the Arlington diocese. The priest and lay people in charge of decor did a fine job. They went to Newark, New Jersey and rescued statues, stations of the cross and a reredos, altar and tabernacle from Sacred Heart Church which was closed.  We decided to go to Mass at Our Lady of Hope  in Sterling becuase it was closer to where we were headed later in the evening. Mass was okay. They have an excellent priest.
