17 April 2020
We have just celebrated Easter as a parish community in rather unusual circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus pandemic. However, we are blessed to have various means of technology to broadcast Holy Week liturgies prayerfully and the Easter celebration of Masses in a meaningful way.
I am happy to inform you that the livestream broadcast of Sunday Mass will continue every Sunday at 10.00am via this link www.shorturl.at/fnCU3.
For the convenience of those of you who will be watching the Mass online, I have included a Prayer of Spiritual Communion below. At Communion the Celebrant will invite you to make an act of Spiritual Communion with a spirit of gratefulness, thanking God for His infinite love and sacrifice. With humble and contrite hearts, let us express our desire to invite Jesus into our souls.
Please Join In
A Prayer of Spiritual Communion
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.
While adhering to the current government regulation of “social distancing”, we can still find ways of staying connected with one another socially, spiritually, and praying for one another during this extraordinary time of our life.
I encourage you to make connection with us at our parish from any of the following communication platforms:
- St Thomas More, Bateman Parish website – batemancatholic.org
- Join our Parish Facebook group (for the adult community) : https://www.facebook.com/groups/2555892488023089/?ref=share
- Register at St. Thomas More Catholic Flocknote at: stthomasmorecatholic.flocknote.com
I pray that during this time of Easter, especially as we celebrate the Divine Mercy Sunday this weekend, may the light of the Risen Christ shine upon us and guiding us along the way of life.
With blessings of the Risen Lord to you,
Fr. Phong Nguyen
