Chrism Mass

We are exploring the option of renting a bus to travel to the Chrism Mass at the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart on March 26. The level of interest will determine if this is a viable option. If you are interested, please contact Deacon Kevin at by March 12.

Flu Season

If you believe you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, please refrain from receiving the Precious Blood from the cup. It is not mandatory to receive both the body in the host and blood from the cup during communion - Christ is still fully present (body, blood, soul, and divinity) in the consecrated host.

Inclement Weather

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.
