AT ALL MASSES - Seating within the church will be limited to 150 due to social distancing requirements. Mass will open 30 minutes before the scheduled mass time. This will give us time to clean between masses. Everyone attending mass must bring a mask or face covering and wear it for the entire mass. Please bring hand sanitizer for your use. Communion will be host only and must be received in the hand without gloves.
Please keep in mind that Bishop Estévez has indefinitely dispensed the faithful from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice. Those who are most at risk of serious infection or illness, are sick or have been exposed to the illness, as well as their caregivers, are strongly encouraged to stay home and participate in live-streamed or televised Masses. We will continue to post the mass each weekend. If you have health concerns or any doubts, please continue to stay home.

The Ascension of the Lord
“All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations,
baptizing them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Matt 28:18-20
In the absence of Mass and the Eucharist, the faithful are encouraged to make a "Spiritual Communion" through the prayer of the Most Holy Redeemer (Anima Christi), the prayer of Self-Offering (Suscipe), or by praying the prayer below:
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
