Do you like to play or learn tennis? Our Lady of Hope is trying to form a CYO Tennis team and we are in need of coaches and volunteers to make this happen. If you are interested please contact Raynelle Araque using the “Contact the Coordinator” form.



Volunteers who have “substantial contact with children,” at a parish and/or school within the Diocese of Arlington, must correctly complete and clear the required background check forms and complete a required, annual VIRTUS Training (as determined by the Diocesan Office for Child Protection and Safety).
