As a deer longs for flowing streams,

so longs my soul for you, O God.

My soul thirsts for God,

for the living God.

When shall I come and appear before God?

Psalm 42:1-2

Bishop Burbidge as of midnight tonight is suspending the celebration of all public Masses. Until further notice, there will be no regularly scheduled daily or Sunday Masses. Be assured that priests will continue to celebrate Mass every day—in other words, Masses will continue to be celebrated in our parish and throughout the diocese albeit not publicly. Arranged Mass intentions will be honored. Your priests, knowing the sacrifice that is being asked of the faithful, will pray for you with all the greater intensity and ardor in the Holy Communion of Our Lord.

Our church will remain open throughout the day as usual. The faithful are encouraged to pay devotional visits to the Lord in the tabernacle. We will have devotional items out for this use.

However, there may be no gathering in the church of more than 10 people and we ask that the 6’ social distance standard be observed within the pews.

We will maintain our parish Confession schedule. However, the above paragraph’s guidelines need to apply. We will have to come up with a creative way to make this possible as use of the confessionals does not allow for this.

Please know that Bishop Burbidge has not made these decisions lightly. It is only in the face of this unprecedented health crisis that he has made these prudent and necessary pastoral decisions.

Please do not hesitate to contact our Parish Office with any questions or concerns (703-978-8074).

May we all join together this Lent in prayer for a rapid and successful halt to the threat of the coronavirus.

One good fruit that I am sure will arise from this situation is that which Psalm 42 expresses. That deprived of what we so love what we have been so blessed in our country to take for granted, when the day comes when things return to normal we will come together once again to celebrate the Mass and will do so with even greater appreciation, joy, and thanksgiving. Marantha!

In Christ,

Fr. John M. O’Donohue
