June 1 – PUBLIC MASS has resumed with SAFETY PROTOCOLS in Place.
We’ve prepared this video to help you know what to expect as we return to publicly celebrated Mass at OLPH. Please call the parish 780-467-5470 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Note: the video is silent except for the section with Father Paul Cavanaugh reviewing the steps for communion.
*When unable to come to the church to receive the Eucharist, we can make a Spiritual Communion. This is a prayer in which we ask our Lord to come to us in the same way He would if we were able to receive the Sacrament.
I believe that You are truly present in the Holy Eucharist.
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
St. Alphonsus Liguori (A.D. 1696-1787)
Please join with us in prayer for a rapid end to the COVID-19 virus. May God grant healing to those who are ill, and eternal rest to those who have died. May the Lord’s blessing come upon our medical professionals and civic authorities, who continue to strive with enormous effort and great skill to keep all of us safe.
Please check back regularly for updates as things transpire. God’s blessings to all and thank you for your patience during this challenging time in our community and our world.
