One, Holy, Catholic & Apostolic.  We are the universal church; we are a community of believers.  Although we may not be able to gather together, physically receive our Lord in the Eucharist or simply enjoy the company of each other, we still have prayer to unite us to each other and our Heavenly Father.  Join us in prayer and know we are praying for you!
