Finding a Parish Priest

When confronted by the mystery of death, Catholics are invited to seek out a parish priest for consolation and counsel about the Catholic way of death and burial.

If you have been away from the Church and do not know a priest personally, please call the rectory of the parish nearest you. The Archdiocese of Washington’s web site can help you identify both parish and priests. Do not be afraid to approach! You are welcome.
