  • Coronavirus Response Updates 

    Update May 15, 2020:

    We rejoice in the recent update from Archbishop Gregory that public Masses may resume starting on Monday, May 25, 2020.  Here at St. Francis Xavier, we will resume with public Mass at 8:00 am on that day.  Our first weekend of public Masses will be May 30-31, the Solemnity of Pentecost.  

    In the days ahead, I will be working with parish staff and volunteers to implement the new guidelines and protocols issued by the Archdiocese of Washington and St. Mary’s County authorities to ensure that we can gather together again safely for the celebration of Holy Mass.  

    Once we have everything in place, I will communicate with you more specifically about the new procedures for attending Mass.
