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.

Flower Committee

Thank you to all who contributed to the fund for Easter flowers. Beginning on April 18 after the 9am Mass at St. Mary's and the 11am Mass at St. Margaret's, the LILIES may be taken home for your enjoyment. The azaleas and hydrangeas will be used for landscaping at the churches. Please do not remove them. Thank you.
