We thank those who already give during this time through EFT and mail in donations and especially to all of those that keep us in their prayers and help carry on the Gospel message with their friends, family, and neighbors. Our Diocese has set up a page to assist Parishes with online donations. Please consider supporting our Parish during this difficult time.

Special Prayers

Fr. Manny also asked that we share these prayers with you during this time:

PRAYER TO OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE by Archbishop Gomez
Holy Virgin of Guadalupe,
Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas.
We fly to you today as your beloved children.
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son,
as you did at the wedding in Cana.
Pray for us, loving Mother,
and gain for our nation and world,
and for all our families and loved ones,
the protection of your holy angels,
that we may be spared the worst of this illness.
For those already afflicted,
we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful,
wipe away their tears and help them to trust.
In this time of trial and testing,
teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.
We come to you with confidence,
knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother,
health of the sick and cause of our joy.
Shelter us under the mantle of your protection,
keep us in the embrace of your arms,
help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus.
Amen.

May We Who Have
May we who are merely inconvenienced - remember those whose lives are at stake.
May we who have no risk factors - remember those most vulnerable.
May we who have the luxury of working from home - remember those who must choose between preserving their health or making their rent.
May we who have the flexibility to care for our children when their schools close - remember those who have no options.
May we who have to cancel our trips - remember those who have no place to go.
May we who are losing our margin money in the tumult of the economic market - remember those who have no margin at all.
May we who settle in for a quarantine at home - remember those who have no home.
During this time when we cannot physically wrap our arms around each other, let us yet find ways to be the loving embrace of God to our neighbors.
Amen.

A 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.
I embrace you as if you were already there, and unite myself wholly to you.
Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.

Prayer to St. Joseph for a Special Intention
Glorious Saint Joseph, protector of Jesus Christ,
to you I raise my heart and my hands to implore your powerful intercession.
Please obtain for me from the kind Heart of Jesus
the help and the graces necessary for my spiritual and temporal welfare.
I ask particularly for a special favor I now implore.
(Make your petition here...)
Guardian of the Word Incarnate,
I ask with confidence that your prayers on my behalf
will be graciously heard before the throne of God.
O glorious Saint Joseph, through the love you bear to Jesus Christ,
and for the glory of His name, hear our prayers.
Amen.
