Welcome to Saint Bede Catholic Church!

We are a Catholic faith community proclaiming Christ's message in word and action. Further inspired by a call to the New Evangelization, we seek to be a community of disciples going forth and creating new disciples in our families, parish, and throughout greater Williamsburg.

Remembering Father James Kauffmann

Father Kauffmann's blog - The Wonder of Truth

Tribute Gifts for Father Kauffmann 

We have received inquiries about tribute gifts in loving memory of Father Kauffmann. There is no mention of tribute gifts in his obituary so Msgr. Keeney has suggested tribute gifts be made to Saint Bede Catholic Church. The donations will be allocated to the National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham to be used in renovations and improvements to the facility that was the original Saint Bede Catholic Church. Father Kauffmann was the director of the Shrine and had conducted several pilgrimages to the Shrine earlier this year. Due to his love of travel and history, we feel he would be pleased that gifts in his honor will be used to enhance the facility that will serve as a sacred place for fellow pilgrims. Please indicate in the memo section of your check "IMO Father Kauffmann" or you can donate online www.bedeva.org/donate Tribute gifts will be posted on our website www.bedeva.org/tributes



Farewell Reception for Father Alexander Muddu

Sunday, June 25  |  Following the 11:00 a.m. Mass

We are so thankful for Father Alex's service at Saint Bede, and we pray that he will be greatly blessed in his new role as Pastor of Saint Mary of the Annunciation, in Ladysmith, VA.  He will be missed!

Farewell Donations

Father Alex has decided that his farewell donations will go towards roofing the Muguluka sub-parish in Uganda. The cost of this repair is equivalent to $20,000. In this area of Uganda, one main parish is responsible for numerous sub-parishes often covering an area of approximately 50 miles. Many of these sub-parishes are makeshift structures, which oftentimes do not protect parishioners from the elements. The main building for the Muguluka sub-parish (pictured top) has become so overrun with termites that it is no longer safe for use. The community has relocated to the brick structure (pictured bottom), and they are in great need of protective shelter to ensure the safety of their very active parish community. Father Alex thanks you for your generosity.
