Good morning, afternoon, evening to all (depending on when you read this). We hope you and yours are well and staying safe. Thank you for all you are doing (even those things you don’t agree with). Please know you are contributing to the peace of others.  

These days with Corona cases rising and Hampton Roads move back and forth between Phases 2 and 3, it’s never a dull moment within the offices of Saint Bede. 

We start with a few reminders:

On Tuesday, August 4 and on Wednesday, August 5, both nights at 7:00 pm, our teens will be sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit and confirmed: “to confess Christ crucified before the world”. Keep them and their families in your prayers. These Masses will be live-streamed for the sake of families living elsewhere and you 
Because of the Confirmation Liturgy on Wednesday, confessions normally scheduled on Wednesday evening will be moved to 8:00 am.  

This week our 9:00 am in person Masses during the week will be on Tuesday and Wednesday only.  The Masses on Monday, Thursday, and Friday will be live-streamed and available on our website or Facebook page. FYI: Thursday’s Mass will be a funeral Mass.   

We say Farewell and Bon voyage to our seminarian Charles Palmer. Charles leaves on Sunday - for a gathering of seminarians for the Diocese of Richmond and then goes back to school at Mount St Mary’s in Emmitsburg. If you missed his “Vocation story” you can find it on our website.
One last thing: If you have lost anything of value over the last 6 months, we may have found it here on property. Call or visit Kathleen Nolan in the parish offices. 

Well, that’s it for this week…Stay cool. Keep the faith and share it with those who are longing for truth or meaning in life. And pray for racial healing in our nation.
