Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things, and 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.

RCIA means Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and Children. Christian Initiation is a spiritual journey of adults and children. It is a process by which uncatechized individuals and individuals Baptized in another Christian denomination learn about the Catholic Church. Catholic sponsors who are willing to share their faith experiences with new members and journey with them throughout the process are always needed. Those seeking to become Catholic may contact the Rectory.

Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.
