If you are visiting, or are returning to Mass for the first time in awhile, we are glad to have you worship with us this Christmas season! However, we continue to recognize the need for many precautions to assure that the coronavirus is not spread further. Please note:

  • You may only register for one Mass, either for December 31st or January 1st.

  • We are hoping to accommodate everyone that wants to attend Mass on the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, but if Mass your preferred Mass is full, we will make every attempt to place you at another Mass, but seating is not guaranteed.

  • The screening questions were updated by the Diocese of Richmond on November 16th, 2020.
