Prayer for
Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.


Bishop da Cunha & regional Bishops
to lift Sunday and Holy Day
Mass dispensation

Bishop Edgar M. da Cunha, S.D.V., and regional Catholic Bishops have together decided to inform the Catholic faithful that the dispensation of the Sunday and Holy Day Mass obligation will be lifted on Father’s Day, June 19-20.

The Bishops saw Father’s Day weekend as an appropriate time to encourage Catholic faithful, especially families, to return to the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist, the center of every Catholic life.

The obligation does not apply to those who are ill, recently exposed to COVID-19 or other communicable illnesses, those confined to their homes or other facilities for various reasons, and those who are not able to be vaccinated for specific reasons.

The full official release of the Bishop's statement is posted on The Anchor website at anchornews.org and the Diocesan website, fallriverdiocese.org.
