Spiritual Communion Before Mass
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.

Instrument of Your Healing
Inspired by and adapted from the Prayer of Saint Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your healing:
where there is disappointment in a test or procedure, make me into a comfort;
where there is confusion at a diagnosis or treatment, make me into clarity;
where there is illness of any kind, make me into care and comfort;
where there is anguish in death, make me into hope;
where there is joy in new life, let me be a multiplier of that joy;
O Great Physician, grant that I may not so much seek
to be served as to serve
to be praised as to praise
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
it is in healing that we are healed,
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

CATHOLIC CHARITIES DC is helping DC and Maryland residents apply for food stamps.
As families continue to experience the financial hardships due to Covid-19; the budget for groceries becomes smaller and smaller. But there may be programs that can help.

Eligibility is based on household size, household income, and household expenses. Applications are submitted online and processed within a 30 day period. An experienced Catholic Charities team member can help. Call the automated hotline at

2020: 10 Questions ~ 10 Minutes ~ 10 Years of Impact!
Make a difference today! Take time to complete your Census 2020 questionnaire. You can choose any one of the three following ways to respond:
: Call 844-330-2020 for English. You can complete the census by phone in 13 other languages or TDD:
. Some people will get a census form in the mail to complete by hand. Later, if you haven’t responded online or by phone, you will also receive a form in the mail.
You should not be asked to fill out a census form by email, and you will never be asked to provide your social security number, bank account numbers, or other private security information. If you are, ignore it. That is a scam. There is no citizenship question on the census. The results cannot go to law enforcement, ICE, or your landlord. It is safe and secure.
