Prayer of Spiritual Communion:
My Jesus, I believe that you are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things, and I long for you in my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though you have already come, I embrace you and unite myself entirely to you; never permit me to be separated from you. Amen. - St. Alphonsus de Liguori
Please pray for an end to the spread of this virus and its impact on all of us. May God bless and protect us all.
God Bless, Fr. Jeremy

A question on the mind of many people during any crisis is "how can I help?". As a parish we can come together to help our neighbors through this difficult time. Prayer and a kind word goes a long way to easing the burden, especially for those who are alone or isolated. Check in by phone with those who you know may be alone. If you know someone who needs some help, let us know. The parish has a limited supply of food that can be distributed to those who need it. We are asking for additional donations of food, supplies, diapers, baby wipes etc. Though the governor has asked us to "shelter in place" food distribution is an essential service and one that we can assist with. Our parking lot link door will be open for drop off donations, Monday through Thursday from 8 to 2. By reaching out to others we can show our love for Our Lord, Who gave His all for us, by loving our neighbor as our self.
