A Prayer to Our Lady of Prompt Succor
to Dispel Fear and Ask for Healing
O, Mary, Mother of God, who
amidst the tribulations of the world,
watches over us and over the Church of your Son,
be to us and to the Church truly Our Lady of Prompt Succor,
make haste to help us in all our necessities,
that in this fleeting life you may be our succor,
and obtain for us a decrease in fear
and an increase in healing for those afflicted with coronavirus.
Help us to gain everlasting life through the merits of Jesus,
your son, Our Lord and Redeemer.
Say three times "Our Lady of Prompt Succor, hasten to help us"

Message from Monsignor Christopher Hynes for Palm Sunday
Dear Parishioners of Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament Parish,
In this time of great uncertainty and anxiety, we can find solace in participating together as a parish in Holy Mass, electronically and receiving our Lord in spiritual communion. This time of great uncertainty has become a time of great Catholic Christian solidarity.
The present health crisis has swept the world and has brought much of normal life to a standstill. It is unfortunate that our “Eucharistic Fast” seems to be continuing longer than expected. We may even feel like we are experiencing a lockdown of sorts. However, we can pray the Mass and for one another no matter where we are in time.I invite you to view the Palm Sunday Mass at 8:00 am, this Sunday April 5, 2020, here on our parish Web Site.
On Sunday, 9:00 am to 10:30 am, we will distribute Palm branches in front of the Church. May I ask that you enter in your car and circle around the American flag and one of the priests or staff will distribute the Palm while you remain in your car so that we all maintain a proper and safe distance.
In addressing parish operations, unfortunately because of the duration of discontinuing many aspects of parish life due to the health crisis and financial constraints, I have had to furlough some of the staff and significantly reduce expenditures. So many of our parishioners have been very generous over these weeks and I thank you. Please know that all decisions that are made are done with careful analysis so that Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament parish can survive and thrive at the end of this awful health crisis.
As a Catholic family, we entrust ourselves to a merciful and loving Father who sent his Son to redeem our world. Though we are physically separated from one another, we can be connected to God and united with one another around the Word of God and the Eucharist.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Monsignor Chris Hynes
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 separate from You.
