Thursday is NOT a Day of Obligation
In most dioceses of the United States, the bishops have exercised their authority to transfer the Feast of the Ascension from Thursday to the following Sunday. This applies to the Diocese of Arlington. As a result, this Thursday is not a day of obligation and we will not celebrate any additional Masses. There was a typo in the bulletin this week stating that Thursday was a Day of Obligation. THIS WAS A TYPO AND THURSDAY IS NOT A DAY OF OBLIGATION. We apologize for the confusion.
