    I just interviewed for a job with the diocese on Thursday, and I'm curious what it's like there. What's Bishop Burbidge like? Does the diocese have a reputation one way or another (traditional or progressive)? It seems like there are quite a few Latin Masses in the diocese so that's a good thing.

    This would be a huge move for me coming from California, and it's a pretty nerve-racking thought. I'd just like to know if the diocese is known for being a solid community with good and proper leadership.

    If anyone on here is from there and can tell me what your experience has been like, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I am from the Diocese just to the South (The "Other" Virginia Diocese, Richmond.) so I'm not familiar with the Arlington Diocese, except that it's smaller in square miles than is Richmond, and it gets on TV lots more.:wave:

    I had a friend that lived in Virgina. I have never been there myself but I hear it is a beautiful state with lots of things to do. She is not Catholic so no info on that.
