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.

As we’ve been saying, let’s continue to keep Father Eliseus and the people of Nigeria in our prayers while he is away. Our prayers are what keep us connected to one
another. For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been praying for the Repose of the Soul of Fr. Ted Drennan’s Mom, Maureen. We received information this week that there will be a viewing at Wiefel’s Mortuary at 57285 Yucca Trail in Yucca Valley from 11:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. this Sunday, January 18th for anyone who would like to attend. Her funeral is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Monday, February 15th at Our Lady of Peace Cemetery in Loma Linda. It’s that time again for our Annual Contribution letters. We can call the office between Monday & Thursday to request our letter to be picked up or mailed and Amy will have them ready to be mailed or picked up on Fridays mornings. If Amy is not in the office, please leave a message and she will process your request. Please be sure to wait for the Ushers to dismiss you at the end of Mass before you leave your seat.
