Weekly Distribution of Holy Communion - Sundays at 12:00 pm

Come for Distributions of Holy Communion outside in the courtyard next to the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida every Sunday from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm. We humbly ask that you please watch our 9:30 am livestream to hear the Liturgy of Word and prepare yourself at home before coming to consume the Most Holy Body of Christ. 

When coming for the Distribution of Holy Communion on Sundays, you do not need to preregister; however, you will still have to wear a mask covering your nose and mouth. We will provide hand sanitizer and a collection basket for you to drop off your offering.


Advent Antiphon
 
The Roman Church has been singing the “O” Antiphons since at least the eighth century. They are the antiphons that accompany the Magnificat canticle of Evening Prayer from December 17-23. They are a magnificent theology that uses ancient biblical imagery drawn from the messianic hopes of the Old Testament to proclaim the coming Christ as the fulfillment not only of Old Testament hopes, but present ones as well. Their repeated use of the imperative “Come!” embodies the longing of all for the Divine Messiah.
