"All guests who arrive be will received like Christ . . . “and to all that do, due honor be shown”(Holy Rule of St. Benedict, 6th Century). Saint Mary of the Annunciation Parish is a warm and welcoming community of people from many different ethnic backgrounds. Our Parish Church, pictured above, was dedicated in 1996, on the anniversary of the election of John Paul as Supreme Pontiff. Today, our parish family continues to grow in the tradition of the Holy Family, providing many opportunities for spiritual growth and worship, and for participation in numerous ministries that offer support to our parish and community. Our parish is known as a community, "Where All are Welcome!"

Virginia Bishops File Amicus Brief to Defend Marriage, Commonwealth’s Constitution

The Virginia Catholic Conference, representing Bishop Francis DiLorenzo of Richmond and Bishop Paul Loverde of Arlington, filed an amicus curiae brief today with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in support of Virginia’s definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman.

The case is Bostic v. Schaefer. Previously, U.S. District Court Judge Arenda Wright Allen of Norfolk struck down the provision in Virginia’s constitution that affirms marriage as the union of one man and one woman – a provision strongly endorsed by the Virginia bishops and approved by more than one million voters in a 2006 ballot initiative...READ MORE
