Changes Due to Coronavirus


Dear Catholic Patriots,

We hope you are healthy and adjusting to the changes in daily life that have come with the coronavirus pandemic. This is a serious concern, so we all need to take responsibility for doing our part to slow the spread of the coronavirus. At the same time, as people of faith, we can deal with inconveniences, accept sacrifices, and adapt to changes with the peaceful confidence that comes from relying on God's care for us.

Please see Bishop Burbidge's recent message<https://secure-web.cisco.com/1MSAoeEM_nrHZAuyu7E55N3X7oVrXwqsk8qnLS01OOZhQ8yZcOBzFwmzXxwnSbKRXSiOMYQbrTq9xvw7DG6vYQ_amfctO9Pi2nd7_fSVlPoBeuyh0QqnFtu5NLdET0hBjfnPPSDQE4RMRgT3q7dpU6Vc_P5H0N_dP1JfRgbJ0mQvwNGVLBL_mxW_E7B5N3wKHCk1AGcA3dts1Fmg9qzO0h-7hAjowtBgLl7P4ngTcBToCBhOtXdqC57PY22dEJAaLrWmWdULTP0mNKVb-HYDmZPHIaLpS-DyuuMh-cooRxkxs_W54Beiw0ruHciZw4U7TmRqL4nnzkBw8OrheA2UqZTJj5Lb2ftC_JGa0_9Psvcx8Wo8uskNGBCO0GOdwKW-0v4QXL-_TUmnTzKch2-rqMd26MJ05xBN2QNe_f1Swq2ln0wsvO9pXNeTUvQOz92c9/https%3A%2F%2Fwww.arlingtondiocese.org%2Fbishop%2Fpublic-messages%2F2020%2Fbishop-burbidge-s-updated-coronavirus-response%2F>, which includes the cancellation of all Masses in the Arlington Diocese until further notice. This announcement, plus restrictions now in place for George Mason and the State of Virginia, have caused Catholic Campus Ministry to make the following changes:


  *   There will be no Masses at the chapel until further notice (see the CCM web site<http://gmuccm.org/schedule-changes> regarding confession and adoration)
  *   All student events are cancelled through April 12; events after that date are TBD
  *   CCM Formal planned for 4/24 is also cancelled
  *   Silent Auction planned for 4/18 will be postponed; new date TBD
  *   The chapel will generally be open during normal business hours; if you have a particular need, please call ahead

In place of our normal events, we will begin posting online content. Look for a video on social media and on our web site tomorrow. We are also hoping to provide a virtual Thursday Night Supper experience at the usual time beginning next week (more info soon). Bible studies will continue through video conferencing. Your Bible study leader will be in touch once we get the details worked out.

Please check the CCM web site<http://gmuccm.org/> periodically for updates. If you would like to talk to a staff member, please feel free to contact us<http://gmuccm.org/staff>.

God bless you!
