OUR LADY OF LOURDES COVID-19 SAFETY
We have resumed our regular schedule of Masses and all Masses are open to the public.
Parishioners are asked to take the following precautions at Our Lady of Lourdes:
⬥ Face masks must be worn inside the church.
⬥ A social distance of 6 feet must be maintained at all times, including while seated in pews and while in line for Communion.
⬥ Communion is distributed behind a plexiglass station. Receiving Communion in the hand is recommended.
⬥ Confessions are not held face to face. All confessions are heard behind a screen.
⬥ Bishop Burbidge has granted a dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation to all Catholics in the Arlington Diocese. This dispensation is extended until further notice.
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.
