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.

The Lord is near to all who call upon him. — Psalm 145:18a Mass Readings: Isaiah 55:6-9/Philippians 1:20c-24,27a/Matthew 20:1-16a That’s Not Fair As Matthew reminds us in today’s Gospel, feeling cheated because of someone else’s good fortune is a tale as old as time. When the vineyard workers grumbled like jealous children, the landowner chastised their ungrateful attitude, “Are you envious because I’m generous?” I once exaggerated to my squabbling children that I wanted just five words on my tombstone: fair does not mean equal. With four children in the span of six years, it was imperative that I address head-on the inevitable sibling comparisons and jealousy. But I also hoped and prayed that even a fraction of my words explaining authentic fairness take seed in their hearts. It begins by appreciating what I’ve received. Gratefulness begets generosity. Only someone aware of her own blessings can genuinely rejoice in someone else’s prosperity. Prayer: Thank You, Heavenly Father, for Your abundant generosity! Today's meditation is from My Daily Visitor (Our Sunday Visitor) courtesy of your parish or diocese. Read More
