An Act of Spiritual Communion
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

(Revised on August 11, 2021)
Our parish celebrates weekend Masses at 5pm on Saturdays and 9am on Sundays.
The CDC and the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) have revised guidance involving the wearing of masks in certain "public indoor settings" which includes public Mass.
The new guidance states: Vaccinated individuals should wear a mask in areas of substantial and high transmission.
* Unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated individuals should wear masks in public indoor settings.
* Fully vaccinated individuals do not need to wear a mask; however, masks should be worn in indoor settings in areas of substantial and high transmission, which includes Isle of Wight.
* Any person not wearing a mask shall not be required to produce documentation that they are vaccinated or that they have an underlying medical condition.
* Hand sanitizer will be available for your use.
* All are asked to refrain from physical contact, such as holding hands during the Our Father and shaking hands during the Sign of Peace.
* Livestreaming - The last Mass to be livestreamed is June 20, 2021.
* Bishop Knestout dispenses all of the faithful of the Diocese of Richmond from the obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and holy days until Saturday, June 26, 2021 and Sunday, June 27, 2021 at which time the obligation will be reinstated. We welcome and encourage all the Faithful to attend Mass in person and participate in the Sunday Eucharist.
This obligation does not apply to those who are ill or with serious underlying health conditions. See the "Statement of the Bishops of the Provinces of Baltimore and the Archdiocese of Washington" posted under the Diocese of Richmond tab.
* Reconciliation is before the vigil Mass on Saturday and by appointment. Fr. Tony has requested that those coming to Confession should wear a face mask until further notice. This is for the safety and comfort of both individuals.
