March 18, 2020

In accordance with the directives from Archbishop Perez to help curb the spread of COVID-19, there will be no public Masses at St. Bernadette Parish until further notice. All Masses will celebrated privately in the Church for the intentions already requested. Masses will be live streamed at the regular scheduled Mass times.  Confessions will take place as normal as long as appropriate social distancing is adhered to.  Below is the prayer to make a “Spiritual Communion” while we are not able to receive the Eucharist. Please continue to pray for our country and our world during this time.

The most common occasion for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when we cannot fulfill
our obligation to attend Mass on a Sunday or Holy Day of Obligation, whether because of illness or
bad weather, or some other reason outside of our control.
You can make an Acts of Spiritual Communion at any time and make multiple times a day—even on
days when we have been able to receive the Eucharist.
Each Act of Spiritual Communion that we make increases our desire to receive sacramental
Communion, and protects us until we can receive Holy Communion sacramentally again.

ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION (St. Alphonsus Ligouri)

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 into 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.

Lent ~ 2020

Stations of the Cross

During Lent we will have the traditional devotion of the Stations of the Cross. This will take place on Thursday evenings during Lent in the church at 7pm. The opportunity for confession/reconciliation will be available afterwards until 8:00pm. Please take advantage of these Lenten practices. Do not just drift through this Lenten season.
