Spiritual Communion Prayer
The most common reason for making an Act of Spiritual Communion is when a person cannot attend Mass. 

Act of Spiritual Communion

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 in 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.

Parish Office

The parish offices will be closed, but phone calls, messages and emails will be checked periodically, but not as frequently as unusual.  We will respond to these the best that we can under the circumstances, as always be assured that you are important to our St. James Parish.
Office phone: 308-234-5536
