Bishop Burbidge has announced clergy changes, which I now share with you. They affect All Saints and St. Gabriel Mission. These changes are listed on the diocesan website (https://www.arlingtondiocese.org/press-releases/2021/clergy-announcement-july-23,-2021/)
Please know that we cannot offer other information, as a Leave of Absence is a private matter between the priest and the Bishop. However, we are grateful that the Diocese was able to assign two priests in such a timely manner.
We will continue to have Sunday Masses for St. Gabriel Mission at the Manassas Park Community Center. As the new priests arrive, we will look at when we can resume the weekday Masses that are held at the St. Gabriel Pastoral Center.
I do ask that you pray for the priests and the All Saints Parish and St. Gabriel Mission communities, as well as the parishes from which our new priests are coming.
Fr. Lee Roos
