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.

Lord, show us your mercy and love. — Psalm 85:8a Mass Readings: Micah 7:14-15,18-20/ John 20:1-2,11-18 Staying Close Without fail, once a semester a student in my Shakespeare class will ask, “Do you think Shakespeare really wrote all of his plays?” My answer is always the same: “I don’t know and I don’t care.” I then explain that the plays matter to me more than the author. At heart, I’m not interested in the various theories of authorship. In a similar vein, I feel much the same about Mary Magdalene. I do not care what her specific relationship with Jesus was. While theological insight and fictional forays can bring new insights into Mary Magdalene, her Gospel essence fascinates me. Jesus loved her deeply. She loved Him. In celebrating her feast, we honor the life of a woman who was devoted to Jesus Christ, who stayed close to Him. Always. Prayer: Mary Magdalen, thank you for your transparent and translucent love of Jesus. Today's meditation is from My Daily Visitor (Our Sunday Visitor) courtesy of your parish or diocese. Read More
