Regarding the Pandemic
The Commonwealth of Virginia’s state of emergency ended on June 30, 2021, bringing an end to all mandates affecting religious gatherings. Case rates in Fairfax County continue to remain very low.
At St. Mary’s, those who would like to continue to wear masks are warmly welcomed to do so, but we are not requiring them. Services will no longer have registrations. The Fellowship Hall will continue to be provided for those who would like to maintain distancing. When it's time, Fr. David or the deacon will come down from the sanctuary to offer the Gifts to the faithful there. We will also continue to stream all our services online.
We are grateful for the patience and dedication of the community throughout the pandemic and give thanks to God for preserving us in good health over the last 18 months.
