Due to the health risks and restrictions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic Bishop John Doerfler has granted a dispensation to all the faithful of the Diocese of Marquette from the annual obligation to receive Holy Communion and make a sacramental. Those who are unable to make a sacramental confession and to receive Holy Communion are encouraged to make a Perfect Act of Contrition and to offer 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 here and unite myself wholly to You. 
Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.
