Dear Parishioners and Friends,

Thanks to everyone who joined the service on Facebook this morning at 10am. Here is the link to the service if you didn't have a chance to watch it live. You do not need a Facebook account to watch this or visit St. Mary's page.

The service was Holy Eucharist Rite I and we began on page 319 of the Book of Common Prayer, which may be found online here . The readings for the day may be found online here .

When it comes time for communion, there's a beautiful act of spiritual communion you may pray:

"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."

This coming week, the service of Evening Prayer will be broadcast daily at 5pm Monday thru Saturday, and we will be back online with Holy Eucharist at 10am next Sunday. Please just go to St. Mary's Facebook page at these times and the live-streaming service should be the first thing you see near the top of the page.

Father Rick
