How to make an Act of Spiritual Communion
If you can’t get to Mass, you can make an Act of Spiritual Communion:
- Make the Sign of the Cross
- Read the Mass readings
- Recite the Prayer of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe 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.
As Catholics we believe that every person is created in the likeness and image of God. Therefore we continue to ensure that our parish is a place where everyone is treated with respect and dignity. We foster an environment which is welcoming, and in which all our parish whanau, including our tamariki, rangatahi, kuia and kaumatua feel safe. Our Safeguarding Co-ordinator is Anita Hudson; 027-381-4400 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
