MASS LOTTERY REGISTRATION
Public Masses have resumed at St. Benedict! While regulations have also begun to loosen, we continue to recognize the need for many precautions to assure that the coronavirus is not spread further. Please note the following four changes:
The seating arrangement has been modified, allowing an increase in seating capacity.
A new question has been added to the form asking you your preferred Mass time for the coming weekend. We hope to accommodate everyone's preferred Mass, but cannot guarantee you a place at Mass.
We will no longer collect phone numbers.
Screening question three has been altered.
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 9:00am, and close on Wednesday at 9:00pm.
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.
