Notice from the Diocese of Arlington to all pastors.
November 14, 2020
Dear Brother Priests,
On behalf of Bishop Burbidge, thank you for your patience as we waited for Governor Northam to publish the amendments he announced yesterday afternoon to Executive Order 67, which goes into effect on 12:01am on Monday, November 16.   With this publication, I am able to clarify that the 25 person limit to social gatherings does not apply to religious services.  The number of attendees at Mass and public worship is dependent upon the space available to maintain social distancing.
Please be assured of my continued prayers for you and your priestly ministry.
Fraternally in Christ,
