What a strange and difficult time we are in, but you can be rest assured that St John Berchmans is and will always be continuing its ministry, no matter what form that is. Mass might not be as easy to find as walking up to the big yellow Church on Logan Blvd., but we hope to make this new journey a little easier by giving as many resources as possible to celebrate this time #togetherwhileapart
Please visit some of the helpful resources below.
- Did you see our Easter Sunday Mass from St. John Berchmans Church? If not, it can be found on the St John Berchmans YouTube Channel here

All these liturgies can be viewed any time after their original online broadcast.

An Act of Spiritual Communion
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.
