Communion Services and Outdoor Prayer

Drive-in/Tune-in with Communion

The parish provides a twice-monthly Communion service for those who cannot attend Mass in person due to the pandemic. The service is held in our West parking lot on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month during our 9:00 am Mass. You have the option of listening to Mass through our radio station or you can follow our live-streamed Mass on your phone. It is limited to 50 Communion recipients.  Communion (Precious Body only) will be brought to your car during the appropriate time of the Mass.  To ensure that we adequately prepare for the service, register below for the number of persons to be receiving Communion. 

What to Expect When You Arrive for the Communion Service:

• Park facing the Church using every other space, and wear a mask.
• Remain in your car for the Mass.  You will be able to hear the Mass on the radio (station provided onsite) or follow our live-streamed Mass on your phone.
• At Communion, exit your car but stay right in front of it to receive the Precious Body in your hand. We encourage you to sanitize your hands before the reception.
• When all in your car who wish to receive have done so reenter your car.
• An attendant/usher will assist you when leaving.
