An Act of Spiritual Communion
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.

Sacramental Policies in Light of the Pandemic

APRIL 15th UPDATED: If you would like the Sacrament of Reconciliation or anointing, please email Fr. Eamon ([email protected]) or  Fr. Martin ([email protected]).

Sacrament of Reconciliation: 

Bishop Noonan has highlighted an important aspect of Church teaching: “In case of physical or moral impossibility in which a person cannot personally go to confession to a priest, according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the Code of Canon Law, a person is to make an Act of Contrition with a sincere desire to go to confession as soon as it is possible” (CCC 1484; CIC 960).

The Catechism further clarifies, “Where the individual faithful find themselves in the painful impossibility of receiving sacramental absolution (through Anointing or Reconciliation), it should be remembered that perfect contrition, coming from the love of God, expressed by a sincere request for forgiveness and accompanied by a firm resolution to, when possible, to take part in the sacraments, obtains the forgiveness of sins, even mortal ones (cf. CCC 1452).”
