All Public Masses have been cancelled until further Notice.
Pray, Hope and Don't Worry!!
We are with you in these difficult times.
Holy Mass is being offered privately by the priests, each day, for you.
Even though, in these extraordinary circumstances, you are unable to attend Holy Mass or receive the Eucharist, know that you are still connected to Jesus Christ and to the whole Church. The prayer of the Church never ceases. Your prayers in private are a very important way of participating in the ongoing spiritual life of whole Body of Christ, extended throughout the world and throughout the Eternal Kingdom of God in Heaven.
Some suggestions for private prayer during these days:
(the prayer of the Church throughout the day, usually at 3-hour
(streamed online by St. Vincent Archabbey or by Bishop Robert Barron):
(A spiritual practice used by the saints and by Catholics down through the centuries when they were unable to receive the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Christ in the Holy Eucharist):
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 have already come and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
