Mass is now offered in Crozet at The Field School every Sunday at 10 am.
Our celebrants include Fr. Joseph Mary Lukyamuzi, pastor of our sponsoring parish, Holy Comforter, as well as a number of visiting priests.
We received recognition from the late Bishop Francis X. DiLorenzo as a mission congregation, under the supervision of Holy Comforter and are working toward becoming a new parish. Please check this page and our Facebook page for updates.
We use Flocknote to send emails and texts to our parishioners. Please complete the information below to join the list!
