Coronavirus Response

Per Bishop William Patrick Callahan, the obligation to attend Mass throughout the Diocese is dispensed at this time. This is not to minimize the importance of the communal celebration of the Holy Eucharist. Know that while the obligation remains dispensed the commandment to keep holy the Sabbath remains, if you are unable to attend Mass or join one of the live stream Masses then please keep the day holy through the reading of Scripture, recitation of the Rosary and other spiritual activities.


If possible (and it is recommended) watch a Televised Mass broadcast in our area.

Let us pray that Our Lord and His Blessed Mother may watch over all of our brothers and sisters in Christ whose lives have been affected by this virus. May Jesus, Mary and Joseph be our source of strength and courage as we unite in prayer, asking Our Lord to bring healing and renewed hope to his people,


Fr. Augustine Bentil


Together we can pray this Spiritual Act of Communion:

An 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 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.


Fr. Augustine Bentil celebrated his Silver Jubilee at Sacred Heart Church, Kojokrom, Ghana, Africa on January 5th, 2020. 6 parishioners from St. Ladislaus and St. Joseph attended the celebration. It was televised live on Sekondi Catholic TV.  Below is the recording if you missed watching it live. 

Holy Mary, Pray for us...
