This from a note by Sister Joanne Ladwig today:
“Let God help us in this time of great need to reach out to him who knows us more than we can ever know and will always be with us.:

Spiritual Communion:
My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now 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.
St. Alphonsus Liguor

You can mail a check to our church office address at:
St. Boniface Church

We are also excited to announce the option to donate online through our online giving link.

Finally, we ask that you take a moment to reach out to our most vulnerable neighbors to ensure that they are safe.
