Spiritual Communion:   the priests lead us though this prayer during the livestream Masses:

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.



We, the Christ the King Parish community, are the Body of Christ called to gather for worship, cherish the traditions of our faith, witness the Gospel, minister to others, and be Christians in the world.
