As you cannot receive the Holy Communion due to the pandemic of COVID-19, when you attend online Masses, please, say the following prayer at the time of Communion:
Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Blessed Sacrament.
I love You above all things and I desire You in my soul.
Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
As though You were already there,
I embrace You and unite myself to You;
permit not that I should ever be separated from You.
This great modern saint and spiritual giant, Pope St. John Paul II, strongly encouraged the world to pray the most Holy Rosary. In his writing the Vicar of Christ insisted that we pray the Rosary. He himself said, at the start of his pontificate, that the Rosary was his favorite prayer.
* We, at St. Augustine's Church, pray the Rosary in the Church on every 2nd Sunday 30 minutes before 10:30 am Mass.

Dear brothers and sisters, at each mass I celebrate, I pray for different intentions.
Send me your prayer requests and I will offer them during masses.
Your prayer requests can be:
- For the deceased members
- Anniversaries and Birthdays
- Sickness or a Planning Surgery
- Experiencing Anxiety, Worries, etc.
- Thanksgiving for a success or any blessings
God bless you.
