As a reminder, Bishop Vann, as shepherd of our Diocese of Orange, has dispensed the Catholic faithful of our diocese from the obligation of attending Sunday Mass during this time of the health pandemic. However, the obligation to “keep holy the sabbath day” cannot be dispensed since it is divine law. Hence, those who do not or cannot attend Sunday Mass for whatever reason are still obligated to pray or worship God on Sunday in whatever way possible. Viewing Mass online and making the Act of Spiritual Communion is one of many options.

Act of Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that Youare 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 momentreceive You sacramentally,come at least spiritually into my heart.I embrace You as if You were already thereand unite myself wholly to You.Never permit me to be separated from You.Amen.

St. Alphonsus De Liguori


Fridays: following the 8:30 a.m. until noon

O Most Holy Trinity, I adore You! My God, my God, I love You in the Most Blessed Sacrament.

Act of Contrition

“O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended thee, and I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell; but most of all because they have offended thee, my God, who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life.”
