SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

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.


YOUR HOME
YOUR FAMILY
YOUR FAITH

A new means of offering Spiritual Food to our people.

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 for how to set up a Facebook account, set your privacy settings and (at the end of the pandemic, if you desire) delete your Facebook account 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.
