Please continue your Sunday Collection at this difficult time

 

Each week you are invited to contribute in the Sunday Collection and offer the fruits of your labor to our Lord in thanksgiving. In the absence of Sunday mass, our parish will suffer financially. As good stewards, it is important to realize that many of the everyday expenses to run our parish will continue.

 

 We know that these are financially challenging times. You may have lost your job, or your business viability may be threatened. Your savings may have been diminished by market conditions. And we understand that your primary financial responsibility is to your own home and family.

 

We ask that you also remember your spiritual home, our parish.

  • Send your donation to:

What Are We to Do Without the Eucharist?

 

When we are unable to receive Holy Communion, we can make a Spiritual Communion, and/or view a televised or online Mass.

 

Act of Spiritual Communion

This is a prayer in which we ask our Lord to come to us in the same way He would if we were able to receive the Sacrament:

 

My Jesus,

I believe that You are truly present in the Holy Eucharist.

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.
