Our parishes are open and worshipping according to the Public Health Order guidelines. We currently have no attendance restrictions; all are welcome. We have not spread a covid infection during our worship together. Our Masses are also available live-stream on Facebook
The dispensation from Sunday Obligation, issued in 2020, remains in affect. Those who are unable to attend Mass at this time are encouraged to read and pray with Scripture and to make a Spiritual Communion on Sundays. Those who are healthy and able to attend are urged to return to the sacraments.
On this website we offer the video recordings that were livestreamed on Facebook. Praying the Mass virtually is not a substitute for in-person worship, but an aid in a time when it is necessary to stay apart and reduce gathering sizes.
My prayer is that it may keep us connected as community and bring us closer to our Eucharistic Lord.
The traditional idea of ‘spiritual’ Communion is an important one to remember and reaffirm at this time. A deep spiritual communion is possible even when we do not share together the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ. (cf. Celebrating the Mass 212).
I believe that you are present in the Holy Sacrament of the altar.
I love you above all things
and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul.
Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally,
come spiritually into my soul
so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever.
