Information for You in the Parish Bulletin
Even though we’re unable to gather together at this time, Fr. Nau continues to share helpful and important information for parishioners through the Parish Bulletin as well as this website. For example, even though public Masses have been suspended, each of our priests celebrates a private Mass every day, usually offered for an intention someone has requested. The Parish Bulletin lists the intentions for the week so we can join our prayers with the private Masses.
I’m writing these words at home, and chances are most of you are reading them at home. Take some time and read the Parish Bulletin right here on the website. I’ve posted links to the most recent editions below. Just click on a Date and that week’s Bulletin will open. (And you can always click on the Parish Bulletins tab near the top of the page to find them.)

Bishop Monforton’s Directives for Confessions
March 17, 2020
Confessions may be heard at the usual scheduled time for our parish (Saturday, 10:00 am). To reduce the risk of contagion as much as possible, the following directives are obligatory:
- There must be a distance of at least six (6) feet between the confessor and the penitent.
- If there is a screen available, it must be utilized;
- The penitent is to stand, not kneel, to reduce the risk of spreading illness by touching surfaces;
- Confessions are to be heard as quickly as possible;
- People awaiting confession are to spread throughout the church, maintaining distances of at least six ( 6) feet from each other.
Follow the particular directions posted at Holy Rosary Church during Confessions.

An Act of Spiritual Communion
I believe that 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.
West End Adoration Chapel Closed
Until the Chapel reopens, you can find helpful ideas and Holy Hour resources online. Here are a couple of websites you may not have seen before:
Online Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration – prayers, Holy Hour suggestions, live webcams from several Adoration Chapels
Nocturnal Adoration at Home – actually, anytime Day or Night when you can’t be before the Eucharist
During this time, schedules and planned events may change at any time due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Before you head out (should you even be heading out?), call the person leading the event to make sure it isn’t cancelled. We’ll provide updates when we receive them.
