Spiritual Communion Prayer with Our Lord anywhere:
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.

St. Mary's Parish wishes to thank Sonya Gillen and Sarah Coulthart, the children of Doug and Pearl Winkler, for the donation of this beautiful new mural of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in our gathering area, next to the new elevator. We thank Craig Gallagher, the image's artist, who also painted the panels in our sanctuary of the Luminous Mysteries of the Rosary several years ago. May this mural help to inspire all who look upon it to honor our patroness, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and to call upon her intercession. Amen.
Fr. James Gross blessed the mural on August 1st (wedding anniversary of Doug & Pearl Winkler.)
