"BE HAPPY IN THE MOMENT, THAT'S ENOUGH.
EACH MOMENT IS ALL WE NEED, NOT MORE."
~ MOTHER TERESA
Here are the latest opportunities to strengthen
your faith and connect with the community.

Spiritual Communion
Our parish church is closed for the daily and Sunday celebrations of the Mass (it IS open for private prayer). During this unprecedented time, I want to encourage you to benefit from increased personal prayer and watching an on-line broadcast mass. Make a spiritual communion from home

A spiritual communion is saying that for some reason, I can’t receive communion at this time.  

During communion, we enter in a relationship with Jesus, certainly not in the same way as physically receiving His Body and Blood, we still invite Him into our hearts and our lives to fill us with His grace and love. 

Holy Mass is available at many on-line sites and St Joseph the Worker is making plans to offer this service next weekend. Here is a short list of current sites.
