Resources to Help during the COVID 19 Coronavirus

 

Saint Anthony the Great, Patron of those affected by infectious diseases, Pray for Us!

During this time of social distancing as together, we all do our part to slow the spread of the COVID-19 Coronavirus, Archbishop Listecki has suspended the public celebration of the Mass.  This necessary, but unfortunate, directive leaves us with a deep longing for Christ in the Eucharist. While nothing can replace the Eucharist, the Office of Worship at the Archdiocese of Milwaukee has compiled a list of online resources to help you remain spiritually nourished during this time.


 

These are resources for you to get updated information on how the COVID 19 Coronavirus is affecting our Catholic Community.  Visit often!

The following are live-stream options for the celebration of Mass and the Liturgy of the Hours, the official prayer of the Church. This list is in no way exhaustive; it is merely an attempt to help the Faithful pray together.
