Bishop Knestout has dispensed all the faithful in the Diocese of Richmond from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice. However, if you choose to attend a public Mass during the weekday or weekend, it is absolutely imperative that you adhere to the various guidelines and requirements. Please take the time to watch our video on how to safely return to Mass and participate in the liturgy. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the parish office.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19, Mass is still being live-streamed for use on various Diocesan digital media accounts of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, including, but not limited to, the websites of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond and the Catholic Virginian, and the social media platforms of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond. Photography and/or screenshot images from the live-stream may be used for the Catholic Virginian print edition. If you do not wish to be captured by live streaming, please refrain from attending that particular Mass time.

Other Announcements

Second Collection
The second collection for this upcoming weekend is for Catholic Student Tuition Assistance. Thank you for your financial support and generosity!

You can make your contributions by giving online or through the GivePlus mobile app. You can also drop off your envelopes at the church!   

Stations of the Cross
Join us for a mini pilgrimage each Friday during Lent (3 p.m. in English, 
6 p.m. in Spanish via FaceBook) to focus on specific events of Jesus Christ’s last day on Earth as a man, beginning with His condemnation. At each station, we recall, pray, and meditate on the specific event of Christ’s journey to Cavalry. Journey alongside Christ as He makes His way to the cross for you.

Annual Diocesan Appeal
Today’s readings are ALL about sacrifice and love. Love and sacrifice. In the first reading, Abraham wanted a son so badly and God gave him one through a wife that was supposed to be unable to get pregnant. God tested Abraham’s love for him. Did he love his new son more or did he love God more? 
Abraham loved God and trusted in him, and Isaac was saved. Abraham sacrifices a ram in thanksgiving to God.

In the Gospel, God transfigures Jesus into dazzling white and says to all, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” God loves US so much he sacrifices his own son (the Lamb) for our sins.

How much do we listen to Jesus, as God asked us to? What sacrifices do we make, especially during Lent, in thanksgiving to God for all He gives to us? How much do we trust in God? Enough to give him control of our finances? Make the Annual Diocesan Appeal part of your Lenten almsgiving.
