Rosary for Sacredness of All Human Life

The USCCB and its Committee on Pro-Life Activities have encouraged all Dioceses of the United States to join in fasting and prayer for a renewed national commitment to the sacredness of all human life from conception to natural death on Friday, May 13th, the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima.  As Bishop of the Diocese of Trenton, I invite clergy, religious and the faithful of the Diocese to pray the Rosary this Friday, May 13th, for this intention.  Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

We invite all parishioners to gather and pray the Rosary after the 11:00 Mass on Friday, May 13th for this intention.  If you cannot make this, please take time during your day to pray the Rosary at home for this intention.

An Act of Spiritual Communion


An Act of Spiritual Communion is proposed by the faithful who are temporarily unable to receive the Eucharist:

“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.”
