MASSES AND OTHER DEVOTIONS
The most important thing we do as Catholics is gather for the celebration of Sunday Mass. We come together on Sunday. Sunday was the first day of creation, the day on which God created the light that broke the darkness. Easter Sunday was the day when Jesus, the Light of the World, shattered the darkness of the tomb and rose to life. Pentecost Sunday was the day the Spirit rushed upon the Apostles and drove them beyond their fears to proclaim the Good News. Each Sunday that same Spirit assembles us as God’s Church to hear the Word and to share the Bread and Cup of Life. That same Spirit sends us out from Mass to continue the mission of Jesus Christ by loving and serving the Lord and our neighbor. We invite you to join us as we come together for Sunday Mass. By doing so, you will grow in your relationship with Christ and His Church and we will benefit by having you with us!

Prayer of 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.
Please contact Fr. John or anyone at the rectory if you’d like a home visit.
