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.
Daily Prayer of the Month (May)
We pray this World Day of Prayer for Vocations and this National Day of Prayer for our essential workers and political leaders. We ask for freedom of all peoples as we celebrate Cinco de Mayo. We pray for Mothers this Mother’s Day. May we honor Our Lady of Fatima by reciting the rosary often. We implore Your blessing on our military personnel and their families this Armed Forces Day. We appeal this Memorial Day for those who have fallen. We ask all this as we remember the Ascension of Our Lord, Jesus.
Prayer During A Health Crisis
Compassionate and Loving Father,
In the face of confusion and concern impart to us the calm of your presence.
In You allow us to find hope and healing.
Be with those who serve the sick and give them Your caring hands.
Be with those who lead and give them Your Spirit of wisdom.
Be with those who have fallen ill and give them Your comforting heart.
Wrap your arms around our world and hold us in your love.
Allow us at this time of trial to then serve as instruments of that love to all we meet.
We ask this in Your Name.

WARNING: EMAIL – TEXT MESSAGE SCAM
NOTICE: Please be advised not to accept any email, text message, Facebook, or suspicious phone calls from me, (Fr. Jeffrey Galens) asking for any type of help or financial assistance. Do not even respond to or open them and please delete them. I will not use these forums for seeking help for the parish, myself, or anyone. There is a scam going around by which they have used my photo, my name asking you to respond. Do not respond, it is not from me. The same is true for any of the parish staff or anyone claiming to represent St. Patrick/Blessed Trinity.
Emails must end in the “@dor.org”.
Please Pray for:
Pray for our Troops:

Please Pray for:
