Please note that as a result of the State of Maryland’s order that no public gathering in excess of 10 people be held until further notice, Archbishop Gregory has indicated that that all public Masses in the Archdiocese of Washington will be discontinued starting Saturday, March 14 until further notice. In compliance with this order, Our Lady of Lourdes will be suspending all public Masses. The church itself will remain open for its regular schedule of prayer and confession and the rectory office will be open during its normal hours of Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 4:00pm.
Archbishop Gregory has also issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass during this time. Please visit the Archdiocese of Washington website for more information: and feel free to call the rectory office with any questions or concerns.
