Dear Parishioners

If you are not well, or having a cold, coughing, sore throat, fever, etc. PLEASE do not come; Stay home. You don’t want to get more ill, nor do you want to make someone else ill.

 

You must wear a mask or face covering. Remove mask upon reaching the Priest. Receive Holy Communion in your hands only and consume it immediately.

 

Before driving away, please spend some time in prayer.

Prayer before Communion:

Father in heaven, you have made us for yourself; our hearts are restless until they rest in you. Fulfill this longing through Jesus, the Bread of life, so that I may witness to him who alone satisfies the hungers of the human family. By the power of your Spirit lead us to the heavenly table where we may feast on the vision of your glory forever and ever. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, bless me, my family and all people.    Amen.

 

Prayer after Communion:

Thank you, good and gracious Jesus, for coming to me. In spirit I humbly kneel before you. And, with burning soul I pray and beseech thee to fix deep in my heart, lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity. Grant me true contrition for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment. While I contemplate with great love and tender pity thy five most precious wounds, pondering over them within me, and calling to mind the words that David, thy prophet said of thee, my Jesus, “They have pierced my hands and feet, they have numbered all my bones”. Jesus, I love you. Help me to be always faithful to you.     Amen.
