Private Prayer Time & Mass
Our Church, St. Peter Claver

Please be patient as our Bishop, our Pastor and his team work to enable us to reopen our beautiful church. All of the safety precautions given by our government leaders and our Archdiocesan leaders need to be met.
We want to reopen our church in a way that each of you and our priests and deacons will be protected as much as possible.
Let's keep praying from the Domestic Church of our homes that this transition into a new normal at our parish of St. Peter Claver is led by the Holy Spirit and for the grace to wait patiently. 



This Saturday, May 30th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the church parking lot the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed.

Please remember to respectfully social distance.

Prayer for Spiritual Communion — St. Alphonsus Liguori
My Jesus, I believe You are really here in the Blessed Sacrament.

I love You more than anything in the world,
and I hunger to receive You.
But since I cannot receive Communion at this moment,
feed my soul at least spiritually.              
I unite myself to You now as I do when I actually receive You.

Prayer in the Time of the Corona Virus

Prayer in the Time of the Corona Virus – Archbishop Gomez
Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas, we fly to you today as your beloved children.
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.
Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.
For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance.
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust.
In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind.
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.
We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy.
Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know
the love of your Son, Jesus.

Our Lady of Guadalupe

Pentecost Sunday

And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.  Acts 2:4

 To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit. 1 Corinthians 12:7

Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent Me, so I send you." And when He said this, He breathed on them and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit."   John 20:21-22


Come Holy Spirit

This weekend let's celebrate Pentecost in the Domestic Churches of our home.
The Liturgical color of Pentecost Sunday is red, so decorate your at home altar with a red cloth, a candle, a cross and red flowers. As you live-stream or watch a broadcast of Mass raise your voices in joyful praise and receive Jesus in Spiritual Communion.
Come Holy Spirit, make our hearts burn with the love of God. May the Fruits of the Holy Spirit come to life in us so that we can be messengers of the mercy of Jesus through our words and actions.

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Generosity, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-Control
