Parish Information

Welcome to Our Lady of the Presentation Catholic Church.  We are so happy you have found us!  Our church is located at 17230 Tom Fox Avenue in Poolesville, Maryland.  We are a small and tight-knit community approximately 45 minutes outside Washington, D.C. Please feel free to contact our parish office for information or to speak to our parish priest, Fr. Justin Huber.  We hope to see you soon.  

***Announcements***

 

Please join us at 1pm on Sunday, May 23rd to celebrate the grand opening of the OLP Rosary Walk!  We are grateful to Abby Antonishek, who spearheaded this project.  What a gift to us all.  After a brief address from Abby and a blessing from Fr. Justin, please join us as we come together as a parish community to celebrate the rosary.  The rosary will be led by members of the Women's Sodality, who will also provide rosaries and prepackaged light refreshments for the occasion.  We hope to see as many people as possible at this outdoor event celebrating this beautiful addition to our parish.  Rain date will be June 6th.  The rosary walk is located just to the left of the church parking lot (in the wooded area).  It is a beautiful place for prayer and reflection.

Calling All Men of the Parish-- Ever feel like you need something more?  It's all about finding a balance to achieve your peace.  For many, that balance is realized when we notice it’s possible to spend an entire life feeding the body while starving the soul.  Consider joining our Men's Group and seeing what it's all about.  We’re meeting weekly at 7:30PM on Tuesdays. You will get an email invite for a Zoom meeting with a video or information on the topic to be discussed. Meeting will last a bit over an hour.  If interested, please send your email to potomaccad@gmail.com.
