Congratulations to the
Family of the Month
Dr. Gerard Ranieri and his family, long-time members of Our Lady of Angels Parish in Woodbridge, VA, were selected as the September Family of the Month for their many contributions to the Parish and the Council. They have provided outstanding support to the parish over the years.
Gerard, a Knight for 31 years, served as Council Grand Knight in 1992. He regularly volunteers to serve on parish or Council projects. Most recently, as a Council project, he initiated, planned, and directed the sanding and painting of light poles and gates in the OLA parking lot, greatly enhancing its appearance.
His wife, Mary Beth, worked for Aquinas School for many years and now serves as office manager at the rectory. She is currently providing valuable assistance in the orientation of a new order of priests assigned to the parish, among her many other duties. The family regularly attends Mass together, and Gerard and one of his daughters serve as lectors.
Congratulations and big "thank you" to the Ranieri's for all you do.
