Bishop Burbidge to Visit Ashburn Tonight

Bishop Michael F. Burbidge, 59, of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington is set to visit Ashburn tonight.

The newly installed Bishop will celebrate Mass at St. Theresa Catholic Church at 7 p.m. This will be one of seven Deanery Masses to be celebrated within a two-week span. It will be the only one in Loudoun County.

Following the Mass will be a small reception, in which the Bishop will be available for meet-and-greet time.

 Bishop Burbidge was installed last month as the fourth bishop of Arlington. This follows the retirement of 76-year-old Bishop Paul S. Loverde, whom had led the Diocese since March 1999.

He will now be in charge of 69 parishes stretching from Winchester to Arlington and Fredericksburg to Loudoun.
