HOLY HOUR FOR VOCATIONS: Mark Wednesday, May 19th at 7:00 P.M. on your calendar for our Holy Hour for Vocations to the priesthood and religious life. This is simply an hour set aside in prayer and reflection before the Blessed Sacrament. It will begin with brief prayers, a scripture reading and reflection, followed by time for personal prayer, we will conclude the hour with Benediction. Please register by emailing or phoning the office to attend the Holy Hour.

CEMETERY FUND COLLECTION: Our Parish is very blessed to have such a beautiful Catholic cemetery in which we can bury our loved ones. Each year our parish makes a financial commitment of $2,500.00 to assist with the upkeep of the cemetery. A special cemetery envelope can be found in this month’s offering box. We know that we can count on your continued support for our Catholic cemetery.

HOW TO MAKE A SPIRITUAL COMMUNION: 1) Make the Sign of the Cross, 2) recite the Creed, 3) recite the Our Father, 4) recite 3 Hail Mary, and 4) say the prayer of St. Alphonsus Liguori and 5) recite 3 Glory Be.

Prayer of St. Alphonsus Liguori: 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.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY
