Spiritual Communion Prayer

My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment 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.

Oración de comunión espiritual

Jesús mío, creo que estás presente en el Santísimo Sacramento. Te amo por encima de todas las cosas y deseo recibirte en mi alma. Como no puedo recibirte en este momento sacramentalmente, entra al menos espiritualmente en mi corazón. Te abrazo como si ya estuvieras allí y me uno completamente a ti. Nunca permitas que me separe de ti. Amén.


We need prayer now more than ever as we navigate this time of uncertainty and make the best decisions for ourselves and our families. 

“Be strong and steadfast; have no fear or dread of them, for it is the LORD, your God, who marches with you; he will never fail you or forsake you.”  Deuteronomy 31:6. 

May God watch over us and bless us during this national emergency.


Casserole Ministry -- March casseroles will not be collected at this time.  Please share your casserole with a neighbor who may need food assistance. Thank you!
