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

The Alpha program is a 9-week series including a retreat weekend that involves brief videos, discussion, and time for fellowship and games. We will be offering the ALPHA program to high school teens, starting on Tuesday, January 12th at 7 p.m. If your child is interested in this program or you know someone who would like to become involved in Alpha, please sign up or contact Homero Ramirez Leon at hramirezleon@sheartchurch.org

You will be able to experience the love of God the Father, and be empowered by the Holy Spirit to live as God’s children. If you are insterested in joining, please sign up or contact Joyce Bustamante at joyceb@sheartchurch.org

The Search
Sometimes we get so caught up in the depth of our faith that we forget what it was like to first wrestle with the big questions – Who am I? What am I searching for? What’s our shared story? Who is Jesus? Why do we need a Church? Is there a God? We all need to get back to the basics to make sure the foundation is strong.
We are excited to introduce The Search, a new seven part Augustine Institute Original Series with the goal of lighting that first fire in those who don’t yet know the faith or reigniting the fire in those who need a primer on the foundational questions. This program will be for 18-25 year olds -including college students- which will be offered every Monday at 7 p.m. Please sign up to be notified of when this program will begin.

Prayer List
Please continue to pray for the spiritual and physical health of these brothers and sisters in Christ.
