Today, Attorney General Mark Herring publicly announced his office’s investigation into allegations of child sexual abuse by clergy in Virginia.  The Diocese of Arlington and the Diocese of Richmond assure the faithful and the public that we are cooperating with the Attorney General’s office. Any instance of child sexual abuse is intolerable and gravely immoral. We hope that this process will bring healing for all victims and confirm our commitment to accountability and justice.

Liturgy is the most essential work we do at Saint Bridget, as the Eucharist is the source and summit of our faith. We are blessed to have so many liturgies at Saint Bridget every weekend. Yet these cannot take place without the help of lay ministers to greet the Assembly, proclaim the Word, and serve the Eucharist. By virtue of our Baptism, each of us is called to serve. Everyone who is baptized has Christ's imprint and therefore is worthy of being a Liturgical Minister, whether as an usher, lector, or Eucharistic Minister. How might you answer this call? Please join us for Part One of Ministry Matters, the fir...
