Inclement Weather Policy
In the event of inclement weather, the Cluster Parishes offices may be closed. If the weather or road conditions seem questionable, please call 757-484-7335 to confirm if the offices are open. Your safety is our primary concern.
Parish History Photographs Needed
The diocese has entered into the next phase of developing their comprehensive history of the parishes of the diocese for the diocesan bicentennial history book.
If you have photographs of one of our parishes throughout the years, please consider submitting them for inclusion. Photographs can either be submitted digitally or they can be scanned at the Cluster Parishes Office.
Please provide the following information (if known) for each photo:
Location: (Portsmouth or Chesapeake)
Date: (if known)
Circa Date: (approximate year, if exact date unknown)
Photo description: (i.e. Confirmation Class of 1942)
Credit: (who took the photo, if known)
Please submit inputs to Deacon Kevin by September 3. Please put “Parish History Photo for (name of parish)” in the subject line.
There have been recent attempts to scam parishioners with fake e-mails that have supposedly been sent by pastors. Within the Cluster, we have fallen victim to this attempt as well.
Your Cluster Parishes’ clergy, staff, and volunteers will never solicit individual requests for money, gift cards, or other financial support for personal use.
Please see the following announcement from the diocese:
“Cybercrime is hitting dioceses nationwide. If/when you receive an email that shows the parish’s pastor or a parish priest as the sender requesting you to purchase a gift card, rest assured it is a scam. Parishioners can and should contact the parish to verify the legitimacy of any suspicious request received through email. All cybercrime should be reported to the FBI at https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx. It is up to the victim of cyber-crimes to file complaints.”
Changes in Masses / Liturgical Events
All Masses this weekend will follow the normal weekend Mass schedule.

Adult Formation Summer Session
