Update from Father Mitch #3
Act of Spiritual Communion
In the current times with video Masses only and the inability to physically receive the Holy Eucharist at Mass, the Deacon recites the following prayer and people are invited to join in:
I believe that You
Are present in the Holy Eucharist.
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.
O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine
All praise and all Thanksgiving be every moment thine
Rest in Peace

Listening Session 2
In the last two years, the US Bishops and in recent months the California Bishops have come out against racism in all its forms, but especially in the Catholic Church. Now is the time to begin these difficult conversations within our parish, last month on October 18, St. Anthony Parish had its first listening session which was very successful and the Social Justice Ministry would like to thank all those who attended as the conversations were very rich and meaningful. Unfortunately, many of the registrants from the first session were unable to attend, so the committee decided to offer another opportunity to parishioners for this important conversation. For those who could not attend last time, we would love to see you and any other parishioner interested in attending on Sunday, December 6 from 7:00 until 8:00 p.m. for listening session 2 on Zoom. Please register on our website (www.stasac.org) and a Zoom link will be sent a day before the event via email.
