Traverse City, Michigan

I am with you always

From Saturday, March 14 through Monday, April 6, 2020, all Sunday and weekday public Masses are suspended throughout the Diocese of Gaylord.

Please be assured that the nuns will take each of you, our dear friends, with us before our Lord each morning.

Our chapel will to remain open during the day for private prayer and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in our tabernacle. The chapel will be unlocked after our chaplain’s private Mass (approximately at 9:15am on Sundays, 9:00am on Saturdays, and 8:00am on weekdays) and will close each evening at 7:00pm.

An optimal moment to make a Spiritual Communion is at the time Mass is celebrated each day, but this is a practice that can be done many times a day with great spiritual fruitfulness. Here is one way to make a 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 in 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.

Let us pray together for those who are affected by the pandemic, for those in the medical community treating patients and for wisdom in our spiritual leaders and in the scientific community.

God brings good out of every evil!

In God’s will is our peace.
