One of the greatest challenges in the current situation is our inability to meet in community - especially in the Mass. Desiring to meet this need, Father Emmanuel will be live streaming Mass everyday at 10:00AM - starting today!
Just visit one of the Tri-Parish Facebook pages (links below) and click on the most recent video.
When participating in a Mass via video, we obviously cannot physically receive Holy Communion. However, we are encouraged to make an act of Spiritual Communion, inviting Jesus into our hearts. Here is one such prayer from the EWTN website:
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
Hope to pray with you soon!
NOTE: This is a new endeavor, and we're still working out all of the bugs. If you are unable to access the video on the Holy Rosary or Sacred Heart pages, you will find it on the St. Mary's page. Thank you for your patience.
All Tri-Parish and Diocesan updates concerning COVID-19 will be posted as information becomes available.
Three Ways to Participate in Mass at Home:
1) Fr. Emmanuel - Live streamed Mon-Sat at 10:00AM (see bulletin for Sunday) on Parish Facebook pages - DO NOT NEED FACEBOOK to participate! (Video available after live stream ends.)
2) Watch live or prerecorded Sunday Mass via https://diolc.org/tvmass, the diocesan YouTube channel, Facebook, or televised on Ch 18 Eau Claire at 9:30am Sundays.
3) Watch EWTN televised Mass, live-streamed at 7:00AM, 11AM, and 11PM, or at the same time on your EWTN cable channel.
Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are 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 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.
