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.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Join us for adoration every 4th Sunday after the 10 AM Mass at Incarnation.

News & Updates
NEW WEEKEND MASS SCHEDULE
We've officially moved to one weekend Mass on Sundays at 10:00 am. Saturday Mass will be discontinued until further notice. Low attendance (less than 25 people) on the weekends, more ministers and volunteers than parishioners on Saturday prompted this change.
Thank you for doing your part to keep all our members safe by practicing social distancing and wearing a face mask when attending Mass. DC and ADW guidelines help protect everyone.
Parishioners who are unable to attend Mass are encouraged to watch the ADW Sunday Mass on TV, online, or watch one of the other alternative live streams listed above. You can make your weekly sacrifices on our website
or mail/drop them off at the church office. After hours, please label and drop envelopes in the Carl Fisher Center mail door slot.
We appreciate your continued support of our parish. Please pray for each other as we will pray for you. We look forward to the time when we can worship together again as one big family.
Sunday, October 18 at 10:00 AM Mass for our CCD and RCIA candidates. Due to the ongoing COVID-19, Confirmation will be conferred by Fr. Carroll.
WORLD MISSION SUNDAY
"Here I am, Send Me."
THIS WEEKEND AND NEXT we will celebrate world Mission Sunday. Pope Francis invites the entire church to support mission dioceses in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and Parts of Latin America and Europe, where priests, religious and lay leaders serve the world's most vulnerable communities. Please keep the Pope's missions in your prayers and be generous in the next week's collection for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.
Envelopes are available on the back table.
OCTOBER IS THE MONTH OF THE HOLY ROSARY
Take the Rosary Challenge. Say a decade a day for the month of October. Learn slow and grow to learn the rosary. A good way for families to pray together.

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
and someone will return the call within 24 hours!

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.
