Welcome!

DIVINE MERCY

 

Sunday, April 11, is DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY. We will celebrate the Divine Mercy Novena each day this week at 3:00 PM in the church. No reservations needed and we will take your temperature when you enter. Masks must still be worn.  

The big celebration will be at 3:00 PM on Divine Mercy Sunday, April 11th. To obtain the plenary indulgence, you need to be at this service, and also do the following within 20 days before or after Divine Mercy Sunday: make a sacramental confession, receive Holy Communion, and pray for the intentions of the pope. You must be as detached as possible from all attachments to sin.

Spiritual Holy Communion
The Church encourages frequent, even daily, Holy Communion, but if at any time we cannot go to Mass in or out of this season of the coronavirus, we can still unite ourselves to the Eucharist through making a spiritual Communion.

By making an Act of Spiritual Communion, we express our faith in Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist and ask him to unite himself with us. Here is the Act of Spiritual Communion written by St. Alphonsus de Liguori:

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.

MISSION STATEMENT: To serve the needs of the growing faith community in this part of Southern Nevada, composed of residents, weekend visitors and snowbirds who pray together, work together so as to build up the Body of Christ; to be witnesses, likewise, to the historical legacy of the first recorded Catholic Mass in Nevada celebrated in Laughlin in 1776 by Father Francisco Garces, a Franciscan missionary. We really are "THE BIRTHPLACE AND THE HEART OF THE CATHOLIC FAITH IN NEVADA."  And more and more, we are serving the growing spiritual needs of folks not only in Nevada, but also in Arizona and California. We are truly a tri-state parish located in the Southern tip of Nevada.
