A Reminder Regarding Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation

Bishop Libasci has lifted the dispensation from the Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation to attend Holy Mass...


"While it is true that illness, infirmity or truly serious reasons may impede and therefore always dispense us of our obligation to come to Church for Mass, any casual absence from Mass without serious reason carries the burden of a willful sin against God and neighbor and must be brought to Confession as soon as possible." -Bishop Libasci

Live Captions Instructions

For those who would like to have live captions, we suggest using Google Chrome and enabling "live captions" in the browser. To enable this feature:

  • In Chrome go to Settings > Advanced > Accessibility
  • Enable "Live Caption." Chrome will download the necessary speech recognition files, which only takes a few seconds.
  • "Live Captions" should start transcribing automatically whenever the browser detects audio.

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.
