The Arlington Diocese has sponsored missionary efforts in Bánica and Pedro Santana in the Dominican Republic for 24 years.

Bishop Paul S. Loverde has visited the mission twice during his more than 16 years in Arlington, including a visit in October 2011 to celebrate the mission's 20th anniversary.

The bishop has assigned two priests to serve in the mission: Fathers Keith M. O'Hare and Jason Weber. They are assisted by Deacon Roberto Alcantara. They minister to more than 4,700 parishioners, as well as 225 students in the school.
