Dear St. Joseph’s Family:
I will continue to offer different links of the viral celebration of the Eucharist, so you can be in spiritual communion at home. Let’s pray for one another and for an end to the virus. Praying for you today.
Lenten Peace, Msgr. Kevin
In recent weeks, the coronavirus outbreak has had a profound impact on countries around the world—and, increasingly, here in the United States.
In light of measures being taken to contain the outbreak and avoid further illness, many of us may be hesitant to leave our homes. In many areas, Mass and other church services may not be available.
It is at this exact moment that our faith is most needed.
In an effort to continue the practice of our faith in these trying times, I would like to invite you to join us online for daily Mass.
Beginning today, Tuesday, March 17, Word on Fire will be offering daily Mass for the foreseeable future.
Join me, or Word on Fire CEO Fr. Steve Grunow, right here https://www.wordonfire.org/daily-mass.
If you cannot attend Mass or join us online, I encourage you to read the Gospels, pray with your families, and join yourself to the Eucharist—the source and summit of our Catholic faith—by making an act of spiritual communion like the one recommended by Archbishop Gomez: “I wish, my Lord, to receive you with the purity, humility, and devotion with which your most holy Mother received you, with the spirit and fervor of the saints.”
And please continue to pray for all those affected by the coronavirus.
+ Bishop Robert Barron
