Bishop Loverde will celebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving in honor of his 50th Anniversary of Priestly Ordination on November 7, 12pm, at All Saints Catholic Church (9300 Stonewall Road, Manassas, VA). This Mass will allow the faithful of the Diocese of Arlington to unite in prayerful thanksgiving for Bishop Loverde and his service as a pastor of souls in our diocese and beyond.
A light reception will be held in the parish activities center of All Saints Church immediately following the Mass. Since seating is limited, tickets have been proportioned to parishes in the diocese. Saint Mary will receive 24 tickets and we will need to have this list to the diocese soon. For this reason, we will hold a raffle for those in the parish who would like to enter their names in a drawing to attend this Mass. Please call the office and have your name entered in the drawing.
