Fr. Jim's Message

A note from our Pastor:

CDC and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) have revised guidance involving the wearing of masks in certain “public indoor settings”. Within the diocese, public indoor settings include public Mass, but not parish offices, schools, or the Pastoral Center which are considered private settings.

Per the Virginia Department of Health:

o Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated individuals should wear masks in public indoor settings.

o Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask; however, masks should be worn in indoor settings in areas of substantial and high transmission.

o Any person not wearing a mask shall not be required to produce documentation that they are vaccinated or that they have an underlying medical condition.


Effective August 11, 2021

Thank you for making these adjustments.

In Christ,

Fr. Jim Begley
