Religious Ed / RE

Mrs. Sherin Murphy, D.R.E.,

Welcome to the Religious Education website for St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church. It is the mission of the religious education department to ensure that our young people receive a proper formation of the Catholic faith in all its breadth and authenticity. Please take your time to look around the website. If you have any further questions for me, please feel free to contact the Religious Ed Office. May God bless you.



There will be a student and parent Confirmation Meeting for those students hoping to receive Confirmation in the fall of 2017 on Sunday, September 18th at 2:00pm in Trinity Hall.

Becoming "Fully Compliant"

As most of you are well aware, the Diocese of Arlington requires that all adults who have substantial contact with children become "Fully Compliant" by 1) undergoing background checks and 2) taking part in the VIRTUS Training Seminar.  These are requirements of the diocese and not suggestions.  Therefore, if any of these requirements are outstanding it is up to you to meet them as soon as possible.

What if I still need to complete background check paperwork?

Please contact me as soon as possible and we will make arrangements to make this happen.

What if I still need to participate in a VIRTUS Training Seminar?

The steps are extremely simple:

1.   Go to the home page for VIRTUS Online.

2.   In the left-hand column, click on 'Registration'.

3.   Click on  'Begin the Registration Process'.

4.   In the box which reads 'Select your Organization'. scroll down to
      Arlington, VA (Diocese).

5.   Next you will be prompted to choose a user name and password.

6.   From here follow the remaining prompts.


Volunteer Ministries in Religious Education:

Teachers and Aides receive preferences on class assignments for their children. Aides are expected to substitute for the teacher when needed. Teachers and aides must submit the signed Profession of Faith (see the Religious Ed Office for a copy).


If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the Religious Ed Office.

Religious Items Needed:


Do you have any religious items in your house that are no longer used? Do you receive religious items in the mail from those organizations seeking donations and you have no idea what to do with those items? Well the Religious Ed program could definitely use them! Please drop them off at the Parish Office and you will be blessed with many heavenly rewards!
