“During this difficult time, it is particularly important that the faithful have access to the grace and comfort of Holy Mass,” a statement from Cardinal Cupich said. “While we observe restrictions on our in-person attendance at liturgies, I invite you to watch and participate in the celebration of Sunday, Saturday evening, and Daily Masses using the internet.”

Please note, while we are not able to gather for Holy Mass and receive the Eucharist, please continue to view the telecast and livestream options while offering an Act of Spiritual Communion.
While public celebration of the Holy Mass is suspended in many locations across the globe, Pope Francis assures the faithful that we can receive “spiritual Communion” while watching Mass on television or livestream.
“United to Christ we are never alone, but instead form one body, of which he is the head. It is a union that is nourished with prayer and also with spiritual Communion in the Eucharist, a practice that is recommended when it isn’t possible to receive the sacrament,” said Pope Francis on March 15, 2020.
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.
