Live-Streamed Masses and Prayer Services

During this time of confinement due to the Coronavirus Precautions we are live-streaming the Masses at 10:30 AM on Sundays and other prayers services from St. Celestine site using Facebook. You are welcome to watch and listen to our previous liturgies and services on our YouTube Channel anytime.

PRAYER FOR 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. Amen.
