Coronavirus Information

Hello everyone,

As has been the case, our civil and Church leaders' response to the COVID-19 situation is continuing to develop. We at A.B.V.M. are committed to keeping you updated. Please read the following important information below.

Recently, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia announced that Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez has suspended all public Masses in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia effective at 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18th and until further notice. Archbishop Pérez said, “As the Archbishop of Philadelphia, my first priority is to ensure the health and welfare of those entrusted to the pastoral and temporal care of our Church. So, in light of the developing Coronavirus pandemic, a decision has been made to suspend the public celebration of all Masses in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for the time being."

World Day for Consecrated Life

In 1997, Pope Saint John Paul II instituted a day of prayer for women and men in consecrated life. This celebration is attached to the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord on February 2nd. This Feast is also known as Candlemas Day; the day on which candles are blessed symbolizing Christ who is the light of the world. So too, those in consecrated life are called to reflect the light of Jesus Christ to all peoples. The celebration of World Day for Consecrated Life is transferred to the following Sunday in order to highlight the gift of consecrated persons for the whole Church.

Rev. James M. Cox
Day of Prayer

In response to the pro-choice movement, the United States bishops have decreed January 22 as a day of prayer in atonement for the scourge of abortion and petition for the sake of the unborn. Please consider attending daily Mass that day or adopt some spiritual exercise if Mass is not possible.
