WEEKEND MASS REGISTRATION

Public Masses have resumed at St. Benedict!  We hope you can join us! However, we continue to recognize the need for many precautions to assure that the coronavirus is not spread further. Please note:

  • You have the opportunity to choose your preferred Mass time. We hope to accommodate everyone's preference, but if your preferred Mass is full, you will be assigned to a Mass where seating is available.

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

Our Mass schedule is as follows: Saturday Vigil at 5:30 pm, and Sunday at 8:30 am and 11:00 am. Using social-distancing guidelines, each Mass has a maximum capacity of approximately 140 people. Sections are reserved for families and individuals.

 

We ask that you review the Return to Mass Guidelines. You will be expected to comply with all requirements in order to attend Mass. 

All those as defined by the Virginia Health Department as more vulnerable, i.e., 65+ years of age, those with compromised immune systems, those with underlying health conditions, etc., as well as those who feel safer at home, are strongly encouraged not to attend Mass. Mass will continue to be live-streamed on Sunday at 11:00am. Please remember that the obligation to attend Sunday Mass continues to be suspended in the Diocese of Richmond.

 

The Mass form will open each Monday at 9:30am, and close on Wednesday at 9:30pm.  

Once you have reviewed the guidelines, and if you would like the chance to attend Mass, please use the form below. Entering this lottery does not guarantee you a place at your preferred Mass. Families and individuals will be selected at random for each Mass considering their preference. Those selected will be contacted via email by the end of each week. You may enter the lottery once per week. Please enter only for the family members residing within your household.

Enter the lottery here.
