SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER

My Jesus,

I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar.

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. Amen.

Good day faith formation families,

          Please know how sad I am not being able to finish our year together. We at the parish all wish health, safety and happiness for your families thru out this difficult time, you all are in our thoughts and prayers. Many of you are having questions about the important dates for sacraments.

          The first communion is cancelled on May 2nd, postponed to Saturday June 20th, 2020 4pm at St. James Church. This was obviously due to the unprecedented situation and abundance of caution and safety for all concerned. Apologize for any inconvenience this may bring. Pushing the date out to later June will give us time to do practices and reconciliation in June. The archdiocese has cancelled masses till right now, the beginning of May and depending on the situation that could change as well.

         Confirmation stays on September 12,2020 without any changes. The retreat will most likely be in June as well and when things eventually return to some sense of normalcy, I will plan those dates out and attempt to give as much notification as possible.

           Please don’t hesitate to email at stjamesandjohnfaith.gmail.com with any questions/concerns , please check the bulletins online at www.stjamesandjohnhaverhill.org for further important information on rehearsals and mandatory preparation for sacraments. These times are all new to us all, we will get thru them with faith, time and following the suggested guidelines of staying at home and social distancing.

This letter will be emailed to all addresses I have as well as mailed to home addresses I have on file, please pass the message with friends via safe practices. Thank you for your assistance and understanding. Many blessings to you and your family.
