Due to concerns of COVID-19 and at the direction of Bishop Duca, all Masses have been canceled beginning Tuesday, March 17 until further notice.
Our prayers are with you during this time. We hope to resource our parishioners by offering the following: The Church will be opened daily from 8:00 A.M. until 3:00 P.M. for private individual prayer. We encourage you to pick up a copy of the Missal. Resource packets which contains Information on viewing daily mass as well as a Spiritual Communion Prayer are available on the table in the vestibule of the Church. Resource sheet with some listings of various resources for spiritual development, Stations of the Cross etc.
As we journey thru this process let us keep in mind the words of Bishop Duca…. “Our act of Charity, in this case is to protect everyone.”
ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
Whenever you cannot go to Mass or receive the Eucharist, there is a prayer that allows you to make a Spiritual Communion. This prayer was written by St. Alphonsus de Liguori.
I believe that you are present in the Most Holy sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there and unite
Myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
