Parishioners Helping Parishioners
We encourage parishioners to stay connected and support one another in this challenging time. We are particularly concerned about the most vulnerable in our community. Do you know a parishioner who might need a check in phone call, someone to pick up their groceries, or food assistance? Please check in on one another!
There are spiritual alternatives for those who cannot attend Mass. Reading the scriptures and prayers, or hearing the readings proclaimed and the Gospel preached by watching televised versions of the Mass offers the benefit of spiritual communion. These are available from many sources - online video streams, radio, and television. Please see the list below.
ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come 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.
