Latin Mass Parishes in the Diocese of Arlington

Background Information

Effective Sept. 8, 2022, Bishop Burbidge has implemented Traditionis custodes in the Diocese of Arlington, imposing heavy restrictions on the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass. Under these norms, only eight parishes are permitted to continue the public celebration of the TLM, out of more than 20 parishes which previously celebrated it regularly.

Of these remaining eight, only three parish TLMs, listed below, are permitted to be celebrated in their parish church buildings. This indult was granted for two years, i.e. ending in 2024, unless it is renewed.

The other five remaining parish TLMs have been assigned to alternate locations outside the parish church buildings, listed below, with no publicly announced end date to their permissions.

Additionally, these norms prohibit the public celebration of the TLM in the Diocese during Holy Week and the Sacred Triduum. 

Public celebrations of the traditional Divine Office are not implicated.

Besides the locations listed below, residents of the Diocese of Arlington may also be interested in options in neighboring jurisdictions: the closest would be the Franciscan Monastery in Washington, D.C., which is a Sunday TLM venue approved by the Archdiocese of Washington; the Priory of the Annunciation in Charles Town, W.Va., which is in the Diocese of Wheeling–Charleston and administered by the Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem; and St. Joseph in Richmond, Va., which is in the Diocese of Richmond and administered by the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter.
