Bishop Burbidge has announced, until further notice, all public celebrations of the Mass are canceled throughout the Diocese due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
All events & activities at SJN are also cancelled until further notice.
Bishop Burbidge has asked pastors to keep churches open to the public, so that those who choose to pray, are welcome to do so in the presence of our Eucharistic Lord, while keeping a safe distance from one another and not exceeding the 10-person limit. St. John Neumann’s de Sales Chapel will be open 8am-5pm Monday-Friday and 8am-12pm Saturday-Sunday for our community to come and pray.
With public celebrations of the Sunday Mass canceled, the faithful are encouraged to devote time to prayer, observe Mass on television or the internet, and pray the Rosary along with other devotions.
The Diocese co-sponsors a televised Sunday Mass with the Archdiocese of Washington. It takes place at the Basilica Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington and is available at 10:30am on Sundays on two local TV stations as well as online. Go to ArlingtonDiocese.org/TVMass for more information or to view the Mass.
The priests at SJN will continue to offer private Masses and remember the intentions of parishioners.
