Cardinal O’Malley has announced the cancellation of Masses until further notice, effective at 4 PM on Saturday, March 14.
St. Francis Chapel will be open during this time for Confession and Eucharistic Adoration. We will continue to post updates about the Chapel’s schedule.
Each intention for upcoming Masses at the chapel will be prayed for at a Mass celebrated in private by an Oblate priest.
We encourage participation in the celebration of Mass broadcast on CatholicTV. Sunday Mass is also streamed live at 11:00 AM and weekday Masses at 8:00 AM at stclementshrine.org and the video is available for viewing afterwards.
Gift Shop items will be posted on our site and available for purchase by phone or online.
Prayer to God for Protection
Almighty and merciful Father,
Who shows your love to all creation,
We come before you to ask for a quick control
of the Coronavirus currently ravaging our world.
Hear graciously the prayers we make
For those affected by the virus
In various parts of the world.
Grant healing to the sick,
Eternal life to the dead,
And consolation to the bereaved.
We pray that an effective medicine
to combat the sickness
be speedily found.
We pray for the relevant Governments
And health authorities
That they take appropriate steps
For the good of the people.
Look upon us in your mercy
And forgive us our failings.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus. Amen.
