Welcome to Holy Name of Mary!

Welcome to the website of the best Catholic Church in the town of Bedford, Virginia!  We know this to be true, as we are the only Catholic Church in the town of Bedford.  Our sister parish, Resurrection, is the best Catholic Church in Moneta, located near Smith Mountain Lake.

A new church directory will be printed this fall. We need volunteers to help register people for photo sessions and greet them at check-in.  Photos will be taken at the church on August 14 -16 and September 4-6. You may sign up online at this link for your photo session, or call the church office at 540-586-8988.  There is no obligation to buy any photos.  You will receive one free 8×10 and a copy of the new directory.


Our website makes it easy to connect with us via Social Media (i.e. Facebook, Twitter), see the church calendar at a glance, and subscribe to our weekly bulletin.  Did you know that the church bulletin is online almost a week before it comes out on paper?  If you subscribe to it, you will receive an e-mail notification as soon as it is published!

Check out our drop-down menus to find the information you are looking for.  If you can’t find it, type it in the Search field and the site will provide you with a list of matching pages.  Homilies by our pastor & deacons and Gospel Reflections by parishioners are posted now in the “Homilies” section.  Check out the “Categories” at the bottom of the website to look for homily topics that might interest you.

The website is always a work in progress, so please feel free to e-mail our webmaster, Jeanne Craig, with any comments or suggestions.
