ICC PARISH-SPECIFIC UPDATES
BEGINNING JUNE 5 THE OFFICE WILL BE CLOSED ON FRIDAYS UNTIL SEPTEMBER.
As directed by Bishop Noonan, all parish offices remain closed to regular walk-in assistance. OUR PARISH STAFF CONTINUE TO WORK WHILE FOLLOWING HEALTH PROTOCOLS. PHONE CALLS, (321)725-0552, OR EMAILS, OFFICE@ICPARISHMB.ORG, ARE THE PREFERRED METHOD OF CONTACT AT THIS TIME. AS ALWAYS, FOR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS AFTER HOURS, CALL (321)725-0552 & OUR ANSWERING SERVICE WILL CONTACT ONE OF OUR PRIESTS.
REMEMBER: As our parish has begun the slow return to public celebrations of the Liturgy, HEALTH PROTOCOLS are in place as directed by our Bishop. Social distancing, hygiene practices, limits to sizes of groups, sanitizing practices, and remaining home if you are sick or concerned about further compromising your health continue as the “new normal” going forward.
Catholics Can Make an Act of Spiritual Communion
It has long been a Catholic understanding that when circumstances prevent one from receiving Holy Communion, it is possible to make an Act of Spiritual Communion which is a source of grace. Spiritual Communion means uniting one’s self in prayer with Christ’s sacrifice and worshiping Him in His Body and Blood. The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. Acts of Spiritual Communion increase our desire to receive sacramental Communion and help us avoid the sins that would make us unable to receive Holy Communion worthily.
An Act of Spiritual Communion
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.
