We continue to monitor the situation both nationally and locally very carefully and pass on any information we receive as soon as possible.

Prayer For Spiritual Communion

If you are following Mass on any of the social media live streaming, Father Woolley suggests that during the silence after Communion, everyone prays this prayer.

My Jesus,

I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar.

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.
