An Act of 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.
What Should I Do with My Weekly Offering?
Are you wondering what to do with your weekly parish offering during this time that we are unable to assemble for Mass? We have an answer! First, this is the perfect time to consider online giving. You can sign up to give electronically at Faith Direct (faithdirect.net), using parish code CO765. If you are giving via check or cash, you may drop your offering in the designated box in the church vestibule, or you may bring it by the parish office.
The current health-related crisis is likely to result in considerable financial strain on parishes around the country, including St. Mary. Please remember that while our lives and routines are being disrupted, parish expenses and bills continue as normal. We assure you that we will be extra-careful with our spending during this time of crisis, but please keep in mind that the parish is completely dependent on your continuing generosity.
Thank you for all you do to support your parish!
