The Fresh Anointing is a Catholic, ecumenical, charismatic community of young adults of college age, 20's and 30's who meet together for:

Join Us!

What to Expect - At the prayer meeting we start with praise and worship, and then move into a period of silent listening prayer and reflection. Some will sense God giving a message for the group, usually words of encouragement, exhortation, or consolation, and may share it if it is meant for the group. There is usually a short talk, a time for prayer ministry, and fellowship.

In addition to the prayer meetings we gather to welcome the Lord's Day with suppers, participate in the sacramental life of the Church, encourage one another in our vocations and discernment, and attend conferences, retreats, and other special events.  Please check this website for announcements.

When - We meet on the second and fourth Friday nights of the month at 7:30pm for praise and worship, prayer ministry, and to enjoy the company of old and new friends. We invite you to pray, learn, and grow with us; and discover a beautiful, exciting life filled with the Holy Spirit. People new to the DC area are warmly welcomed.

Where - We meet at St. Anthony Catholic Church in Margo Hall.  St. Anthony is in the Brookland neighborhood of DC ("Little Rome"), near the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
