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.

A Message from Ms. Joan Goertz:
“As many of you know, my birthday was last Friday. During the week I received an unexpected and amazing outpouring of cards and well wishes from my son's former and present parishioners, young and old, from as far away as California. I shared every greeting with my son. I opened and read each card to him while he was driving to Martinsville or walking his dog. I was touched by your memories of my visits to Danville as well as your expressions of appreciation and affection for my son. As this is expected to be my last birthday, I want to thank you so much for making it so special. God bless you all.”
