    July 26, 2020

    Adult Sacraments of Iniatiation

    Adult Sacraments of Initiation            
         Congratulations and many blessings to our newly-baptized adults who received the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) on Sunday, July 26, 2020 at 9:00 AM at the Richeyville Mission Church with Reverened Edward L. Yuhas (Pastor) conferring. Mike Zekir, Jr. and his uncle, Tom Zekir, have been preparing throughout the last year through formation in the RCIA process (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults).        
         Although traditionally celebrated each year at the Easter Vigil, the opportunity to celebrate these Easter Sacraments had been postponed in parishes all around the world, until a more suitable time could be determined by our bishops and pastors amid the COVID-19 crisis and restrictions. Please continue to keep Mike and Tom and all recently initiated new Catholics in our prayers.

  • How to make a
    "Spiritual Communion"

    "Spiritual Communion"

    Introduction: 
         During this time of the Coronavirus, many people feel afraid and helpless.

         As Christians, we are called to do good through our example of words, actions and prayer. The good that we do can have a positive impact upon others at such challenging times. Pope Francis offers us encouragement: 

    “Let us call upon him today, firmly rooted in prayer, for without prayer all our activity risks being fruitless and our message empty.” (Evangelii Gaudium, no. 259)

  • Coronavirus Prayer

    Prayer
    During Coronavirus Outbreak prayer hands
    God our Father we come to You in our need to ask Your protection against the Coronavirus that has claimed lives and has affected many.

    We pray for Your grace for the people tasked with studying the nature and cause of this virus and its disease and of stemming the tide of its transmission.

    Guide the hands and minds of medical experts that they may minister to the sick with competence and compassion and of those governments and private agencies that must find cure and solution to this epidemic.

    We pray for those afflicted.
    May they be restored to health soon.

    Grant us the grace to work for the good of all and to help those in need.

    Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
    God forever and ever.

    Amen.
