MASS AT 50% 

Per the Bishop’s directives, we are permitted to open our masses to 50% of our church seating capacity at this time. Spaces are marked and families may sit together. Masks are required. There is no need to call the church office to put your name on the list of attendees. The ushers will direct you to seating and when capacity is reached, parishioners will be asked to attend another mass. We pray that God continue to protect our parish family from the virus.

Spiritual Communion Prayer

My Jesus, 

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.
