Here are some additional ways to celebrate Spiritual Communion while attending a livestreamed Mass:
~Prepare a table with appropriate cover, candles, and crucifix. Put yourself in the presence of God and focus on the Celebration of the Eucharist. ~Dress and participate as if you were there physically. ~Observe the proper gestures of standing, sitting, and kneeling, as well as singing and reciting aloud the responses. ~Turn off other devices and refrain from doing other household activities during this time. ~Recite the Spiritual Communion Prayer during the time at which Communion would have taken place.
The Cathedral is open for private prayer Mon.-Sat. from 6:30 am to 6:30 pm and Sunday from 10:30 am to 6:30 pm. FREE resource materials are available on tables located near the side doors, including books, prayers, children’s material, and Family Prayer Stations to do at home!
