When, for any reason, we cannot participate in Mass, the Church invites us to unite with Christ through this prayer of Spiritual Communion. Praying this prayer is a beautiful way to
unite our hearts to Christ's when we cannot receive him physically in the Eucharist.

resources for guiding your

There is much to be done to join our three parishes in the way of
office procedures and programs. As we have mentioned, updating the
information in our Parish Data System programs is one of those tasks,
making sure that we have current addresses, phone numbers,
household members, emails, etc. So, we need your help. When
someone from your parish calls you, or if you receive a request in the
mail, please offer the information that is needed. It sure will help us
out when merging the data bases for all three parishes in January. A
big THANKS to those we have already talked with. You have been so
receptive and cooperative. If you haven’t been reached yet, we will be
in touch soon, one way or another!
