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.

Thank You!

Special thanks to all who helped with the
remodeling project at St. Margaret’s Church. All the statues and stations have been cleaned and polished. All the windows have been washed and the carpets have been cleaned.
Thank you all for helping to beautify the Church in time for the Christmas season. This could not have been done without you support and love for St. Margaret's Church.
