Dear Friends:

As our parish reopens for public Masses this weekend, we thank everyone who read the detailed information and pre-registered to attend one of the Masses on May 23-24.

As a reminder: pre-registration for this weekend’s Masses has now closed. Those who pre-registered will receive a confirmation message later today. IF YOU WERE NOT ABLE TO PRE-REGISTER FOR A WEEKEND MASS, we will not be able to allow you to enter the building on Saturday or Sunday. But please remember that you may pre-register NOW for Daily Masses which will begin on May 26. We ask parishioners to pre-register for each and every Mass that they plan to attend.

See below for all of the information you will need in order to pre-register for weekend or weekday Masses.

We thank all of you for your patience and understanding as we undertake this unique ‘reopening’ task. Next week, we will give you an update about how everything went this weekend, and we will alert you if any adaptations need to be made as we move forward.

And, during this time of transition, please be aware that there have been some changes to the parish schedule:

The “WALK” team will be hosting a food drive to support the Henrico County Public Schools Department of Family and Community Engagement (FACE) COVID-19 donation program and the Pantry/Partner program—both groups are feeding vulnerable children and families especially during this time. The food drive will be held at the Gleneagles Shopping Center on Ridgefield Parkway from 9am-noon on Saturday May 30. The food drive will take place in the southwest corner of the parking lot there. Suggested items to donate: breakfast bars ( Nutri-grain, or granola), crackers and pretzels, instant oatmeal, juice and juice boxes, mac and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, Ramen noodles, soups, and gallon size Ziplock bags.SO—please STEP UP & HELP!!
