Evening Prayer

Join us each Tuesday evening during Lent for Evening Prayer in the "Taizé" style.  This one-hour service will include familiar music from the Taizé Community in France, Scripture readings, and silence.  The Blessed Sacrament will be on the Altar throughout our celebration, helping us to focus on the Presence of the Lord.  Join us beginning on Tuesday, February 23.  (As with all liturgical gatherings at this time, registration is required for this event.)

Reflection for the 2nd Sunday of Lent (February 28, 2021) - https://youtu.be/up1n6GZasIk

St. Mary's will be offering a reflection series on the Sunday Gospels during Lent this year. The six-week series will begin the week of February 15th and will feature a video commentary by Fr. Michael Renninger. There will be an opportunity for virtual small group discussions facilitated by members of the parish to help us gain a deeper understanding of these powerful passages as we prepare for the Easter Season.  Click here for more information and to register.

Diocesan Annual Appeal

Message from the Most Reverend Barry C. Knestout, Bishop of Richmond:
 
"This past year has been unlike anything I could have imagined. And yet, through it all, I have witnessed the unshakable faith of our priests, leaders and families.
 
Our faith and our mission continue with strength and perseverance.
 
When the pandemic hit, the Diocese of Richmond came together to help our parishes learn new skills and expand their presence online. In addition, resources were mobilized to support many critical ministries. I am so proud of all that we accomplished together, and I am committed to building on these successes in the year ahead.
 
The 2021 Annual Diocesan Appeal is the yearly opportunity for us to engage the next generation, provide for those in need and build Catholic communities.
 
I pray that you will consider making a generous pledge to this year’s Appeal."

The goal for this year’s Appeal is $3.7 million. Through your generosity, the Appeal supports St. Francis Home, which provides a loving place of residence for our elderly neighbors who have very limited means. The Appeal provides $475,000 in assistance through the Fuel & Hunger Fund, and offers direct support for retired priests. The Appeal also provides resources for the education of seminarians, distance learning and campus ministries. A significant portion of each dollar donated to the Appeal returns to Saint Mary’s Parish to help support vital ministries. Many of you will soon receive a letter inviting you to participate in this year’s Appeal.
 
On the weekend of February 20/21, our ‘in pew’ process will enable parishioners to make a gift to the Appeal. To make a donation today, go to: https://richmondcatholicfoundation.org/appeal/
