Worship At Home
Things have changed very rapidly in the past week, and many individuals and families are working to develop a schedule and routine for the next few weeks. Don't forget about adding some time to pray and worship each day. It is still possible to continue to worship and strengthen your personal relationship with God at home. Here are some resources to get you started.

Stations of the Cross
The St. Edith Youth Group has traditionally performed the Stations on Good Friday at noon with a blend of story, imagery and song. The Youth Group still wanted to share the Stations this year, so they have created a video to bring them to your home. Praying the Stations of the Cross is a great way to reflect on Christ’s Passion and help us grow closer to Him.
Prayer for Protection
This is an occasion for all of us to pray more intensely for each other.
Even though you are not able to receive the Holy Eucharist, you can still reach out to Jesus by making a Spiritual Communion and reciting this prayer at the time of communion:
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You have already come, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
