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.

The Knights of Columbus would like to thank our parishioners for the wonderful outpouring of love and kindness in supporting the Drive Through Food Drive on Sunday, June 14. Two pick up trucks and two cars were full to the brim with food and over $1,400.00 in cash donations were collected. Both St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry and St. Phillip Food pantry in Norwalk were thrilled to receive such an abundance of food that will feed over 475 needy families.
Our High School Youth Group met for an outdoor gathering and spent time catching up with each other while emptying Easter eggs after the hunt was cancelled due to the shutdown. The high schoolers delivered some of the candy with notes to their buddies in the Middle School Youth Group. The rest of the candy was packaged up and donated to the Assumption Food Closet.
Status of “We’re Reaching Out to all Parishioners”
Fr. Cyrus Deacon Bill
Several weeks ago, a pastoral decision was made by Fr. Cyrus and Dn. Bill to attempt to reach out to all parishioners as the State-mandated pandemic lockdown has continued. To date, as of mid-May, our clergy has called close to 300 families with positive results. The intention of these calls is to make sure our parishioners are safe, well and to let them know they are being prayed for.
This social connection project has revealed interesting comments. Many of our parishioners said they were safe and thankful for the call. They expressed how they are grateful that God is “keeping them safe.” They all spoke of missing Mass and the sacraments but for the most part, “attending Mass” by viewing our parish live-streaming Masses or watching other TV Masses on EWTN or from other sources. Parishioners expressed their hope that someday, our church will be fully open soon but understand the several partial opening phases of worship would be a very good start.
