While you cannot receive the Eucharist in this manner, you are invited to make a Spiritual Communion, praying the Act of Spiritual Communion listed below:

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.


Here are some other resources to keep your faith strong during these times:

Visit for Catholic media – from video to books to audio – for all ages. A link for this is on our website as well

Find online resources to help you and your family grow in faith:

Join each day in praying – with Archbishop Hebda and faithful Catholics throughout the Archdiocese – the daily Litany in Time of Need, 11:05 am on Relevant Radio 1330am, or on the Relevant Radio App, or on the website:
