 Friday, June 25 No Mass—Father is attending Priest Unity Days in LaCrosse 


From Bishop Callahan: We will lift the current dispensation of the Sunday Mass and Holy Days                    of Obligation for the Diocese of La Crosse beginning on June 26–27. I invite, encourage, and                        request the faithful, who are able and well, and who have not already done so, to return to                            in-person participation in the celebration of the Mass.



FACE MASK NOTICE 

FACE MASK: While there is no statewide or countywide mask mandate, Bishop William Callahan calls on the Catholic faithful to make sacrifices that will benefit others. He strongly encourages the practice of wearing masks by all individuals, 5 years or older, present within all churches or when attending any function associated with the ministry of the Diocese of La Crosse. Bishop Callahan notes that the exercise of limitations, such as wearing masks and social distancing, as difficult and frustrating as they may be, should be viewed as charitable acts offered for others. By doing these simple things and embracing these small sacrifices, Catholics can do their part to ensure that everyone stays healthy and that churches and schools can remain safe environments for all.

Year of St Joseph

 The Diocesan “Year of St. Joseph” has been extended to December 8, 2021


St. Joseph – We need his intercession! Bishop Callahan is inviting all to celebrate a “Year of St. Joseph”. This year marks the 150th anniversary of Blessed Pius IX’s decree naming St. Joseph Patron and Protector of the Universal Church. Several events, prayers, and novenas will be available throughout the year. Please follow the Diocesan website at diolc.org for further information and future events.


 

Spiritual Communion 

When we are unable to receive Jesus in the Holy Eucharist the Church encourages us to make an act of “spiritual communion,” where we unite ourselves to God through prayer. It is a beautiful way to express to God our desire to be united with him when we are unable to complete that union in the reception of Holy Communion.  

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.
