Coronavirus Update 03/24

A Message from Fr. Tony

The video below was broadcast on Facebook Live on March 23 at 5:30pm.  Every Monday Fr. Tony will produce a brief address to the parish on Facebook Live.

If the video does not play, please visit the parish website.  The video has been posted there as well.  


My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now 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.


A new means of offering Spiritual Food to our people.

Over the course of this pandemic you will be able to receive Spiritual Food digitally from your parish family. At pre-scheduled times during the day you can log on to Facebook Live and participate in prayer and faith growth opportunities.

If you don’t have a Facebook account, we encourage you to prayerfully consider setting up an account just during the time in which we cannot gather together in person.  

It is incredibly important to stay United in Christ and connected to our faith.  We are able to offer Spiritual Communion through these programs and bring peace and hope into the homes of our parishioners.

Instructional videos are available at the parish website to help you set up and account, set all of your privacy settings and even delete your account at the end of this separation.
