An Act of Spiritual Communion for those unable to attend Mass in person:
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.

Lenten Prayer Partners
For our Lenten Prayer Partners this year of the Pandemic 2021, we feel it is still important to pray for one another. It was suggested that we keep the same partner as last year because not everyone is comfortable coming to church to sign-up. (At Ss. Columba Brigid there will be a sign-up sheet for new families or call Paula Hunt.)
A member of the prayer partner committee will call you to remind you of your prayer partner's name and to see if you are able to continue. If you have any questions, call Sr. Maureen at 897-9948 x 103. Thank you for your participation in this important ministry for one another!
Please join us at our next men's group meeting at Ss. Columba Brigid! We meet once a month to share faith, sing songs of praise and pray for each other. Our next meeting is Tuesday, March 16th at 7 pm in the church hall. We practice social distancing by sitting 6 feet apart and we wear masks. Any questions, please call Deacon Jerry at 863-4800. We hope to see you there!
Lent and Fratelli Tutti
We will have a series of 30-minute Zoom presentations on Fratelli Tutti each Thursday of Lent from 7 - 7:30 pm, with time for questions and comments. You can attend as many or as few of the sessions as you want. If you would like to join us, please email for the Zoom link.
Consecration to St. Joseph
The Diocese of Buffalo will begin a 33-day Consecration to St. Joseph on Monday, Feb. 15 that will continue through March 19. This is to mark the 150th anniversary of St. Joseph being named “Universal Patron of the Church” and Pope Francis' call for a Year of St. Joseph, as well as St. Joseph being the Patron Saint of the Diocese of Buffalo, and named Cathedral. Bishop Michael W. Fisher will celebrate Mass on the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Friday, March 19 at 12:10 p.m., at St. Joseph Cathedral in downtown Buffalo to conclude the consecration. “As your new bishop and shepherd, I am encouraging all of the faithful of our diocese to join together with me in prayer during this very special period of consecration to St. Joseph,” said Bishop Fisher. “St. Joseph provides a timeless example of faithfulness and trust in God, despite uncertainty and even unreasonable circumstances. We would do well to reflect on how his witness might inspire our own as we seek in our day and time to reveal Christ to our world.”
