Divine Mercy Chaplet at St. John

Pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet with Fr. John O'Neill (recorded on Sunday, April 19, 2020)

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 there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.

An Important Message from Fr. John (Dec. 28, 2020)

In a sense of precaution and safety, Fr. Carlos tested and was diagnosed with COVID-19 this afternoon.  Please add him and anyone else you know who has the virus to your prayer lists.


For the short term - daily masses will be suspended at both St. John and St. James until either Fr. Carlos or I are able to celebrate virus-free.  Realistically it will be after the first of the year.  Our hope is that we will have priests available for Saturday Vigil and Sunday Masses at both parishes, but we may have to wait until later in the week to know for sure.


There will only be one Mass in Bartlesville on New Year's Day - 9:30 at St. James.  Fr. Higgins is available and will celebrate.


Thank you for your prayerful support - we are praying for you.  Also, please be safe.


In the service of Christ.

Fr. John
