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.

SPECIAL THANKS FROM SVdP SOCIETY
The Giving Tree was a resounding success again this year. We were able to help a mom with five children who, as of five days before Christmas, could only afford two small trucks for her sons and nothing for her daughters. The girls had to share a winter coat. We were able to give the mother a coat for her daughter, toys and crafts for her children. Because of your love and generosity St. Vincent de Paul Society was able to help, not only this family, but many, many more. Again, our sincere appreciation for your love and generosity in this special time of year. We wish you all a blessed Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.
