Pastor's Corner from May 12, 2020
Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam made it official on Tuesday: Much of Northern Virginia will delay the easing of public-health restrictions for two weeks.
This means that Holy Family Catholic Church will NOT be moving into Phase 1 (with public Mass) until AT LEAST May 28, 2020. IF this date actually happens, our First Public Mass will most likely be Saturday/Sunday, June 6, 2020.
In a statement Tuesday, Northam’s office said Executive Order 62 will let Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William counties; the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas and Manassas Park; and the towns of Dumfries, Herndon, Leesburg and Vienna (Northern Virginia Region) to remain in what’s called Phase Zero until one minute before midnight on the night of Thursday, May 28.
The rest of Virginia will enter the new phase on Friday, May 15.
Stay Healthy, Stay Safe, Stay Close to God,
Fr. Bill Korpi, Pastor, Holy Family Catholic Church
