From The Canons:
 

Due to the regulations of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston for Phase II in their policy regarding public Mass and use of churches, our monastic church simply can not accommodate the general public without the tripling the number of our Sunday Masses, which is impossible for us to do.

The faithful of our diocese (and the surrounding ones as well) are still dispensed from the Sunday obligation.  For those among our usual Mass goers in good health and wish to attend Sunday Latin Mass, we encourage them to attend the 12:30 pm Latin Mass now being offered each Sunday at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 130 Keating Drive, Winchester, VA 22601. The CRNJ has been invited to celebrate this Mass for the foreseeable future, at least until our own diocese initiates Phase III, the normal celebration of our liturgies.  

Sunday and daily Mass will continue to be livestreamed on our Facebook page and YouTube channel: Sunday Mass will be a Low Mass celebrated at 8:30 AM, daily Mass at 8:00 am Monday – Friday and 9:30 am on Saturday. 

Confessions will continue to be by appointment only; we will not resume our usual manner of hearing  confessions until Phase III has been introduced.  To make an appointment for confession, please call the Priory at 304-724-6995.  St. James Catholic Church in Charles Town is also offering confessions outdoors on Saturdays from 10 am to 12 noon and 2 pm to 4 pm. 

We are most regretful of the limitations of this observance for any and all who come to our monastic church. We eagerly look forward to Phase III when everyone can be accommodated once again in our monastic church again.
