Ensuring Responsible Ministry at Loyola on the Potomac

COVID 19 Pandemic Update

August 13, 2021

In compliance with the mandate set forth by the Charles County Commission, Masks MUST be worn in all public spaces of business and worship effective 5:00 pm on August 13 regardless of vaccination status.

Loyola on the Potomac will comply with this mandate as we have throughout the pandemic.  We will update this information when the local government makes any changes to the current guidelines.

We also ask that all guests respect others’ desire for social distancing.  Please do not assume that everyone is comfortable with physical touch, hugs, etc.

We will continue to have hand sanitizing stations throughout the building and encourage all guests to continue and practice the principle of “safety first.”

Our dining staff will continue to utilize face coverings (either mask or shield) and gloves when serving meals.  Out housekeeping staff remains committed to providing a well sanitized and thoroughly cleaned environment.

The Retreat House is now officially reopened to our full capacity of 72 guests.

We are grateful to all who have supported us over these past 16 months and helped us to weather the storm.  Together we remain partners in ministry, beacons of His light, and committed to growing in our relationship with our loving Lord.
