Update-Proposed Mass Schedule Change

Thank you for your responses regarding changes to the Mass schedule for 2021. We received 38 returns. There were 25 who approved ALL the changes, 8 who approved the Saturday only change and 5 who approved the Sunday only change. It is hard to make a decision without more input.

So…For 2021, all will remain the same EXCEPT the Saturday evening Mass at 5 pm will be cancelled in June, July and August (the weekend after Memorial Day through Labor Day weekend). This change will be a help since attendance at the 5 pm Mass drops during the summer. It is nearly impossible to get ministers to assist at this Mass in summer time and to get a priest to cover Masses during this time depends on their schedules, not mine, so I need the flexibility.

We will revisit the Sunday morning schedule in 2022. Thanks for your understanding.

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 in 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

ORACIÓN DE COMUNIÓN ESPIRITUAL
Creo, Jesus mio, que estas real y verdaderamente en le cielo y en el Santismo Sacramento del Altar.
Os amo sobre todas las cosas y deseo
Vivamente recibirte dentro de mi alma, pero no pudiendo hacerlo ahora sacramentalmente venid al menos espiritualmente a mi Corazon.
Y como si ya os hubiese recebido, os abrazo y me uno del todo a Ti. Senor, no permitas que jamas me aparte de Ti.
Amen
