Welcome to Saint Bede Catholic Church!
We are a 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.

The Lord is my light and my salvation. — Psalm 127:1 Mass Readings: Isaiah 29:17-24/Matthew 9:27-31 Bags Of Gold Today we remember St. Nicholas, fourth-century bishop and inventor of stockings with bags of gold in them. Well, not exactly. Nicholas tossed the bags of gold into a household through an open window. (He had a very good arm and aim.) The recipients were three young women from a very poor family. Without any dowry, they faced either a gray, lonely spinsterhood or marriage to a parent’s worst nightmare. Today Isaiah tells us, “The lowly will ever find joy in the Lord.” St. Nicholas helped make that happen for those three young women. Stories of his deep concern for others abound; we can learn something from each of them. Even if they’ve been embellished with bits of fanciful detail — are pious legends — they tell us something true and real about him. Prayer: St. Nicholas, help me see the needs of the poor around me — and respond. Today's meditation is from My Daily Visitor (Our Sunday Visitor) courtesy of your parish or diocese. Read More
