GET YOUR PALMS!! This Sunday, April 5th, is the start of Holy Week. St. Mary's will have palms available for you. On Sunday our older youth will be in the parking lot to distribute to you in a drive-by forms from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. They will also be available in church if you wish to make a visit also.
Fr. Gross will have additional confessions on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.
The devotion for the month of April is the Holy Eucharist. It's difficult for Catholics not to partake in physically receiving the Precious Body and Blood of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Until we can once again gather together at Mass inside St. Mary's Church, we can be comforted that we have this Spiritual Communion Prayer.
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.
PARISH OFFICE: The Parish staff is currently working regular hours, but the office is CLOSED to the public. If you need anything, please call St. Mary's office at (701) 775-9318. God bless.
