The Archdiocese of Miami has prudently canceled public Masses until we get the Coronavirus COVID-19 under better control. Archbishop Wenski has asked parishes that are able to do so, to stream the Mass live. Belen wants to do its part as well.
Sunday Mass will be streamed live from the Belen Jesuit Chapel of the Immaculate Conception at 11 a.m. and at 9:30 a.m on weekdays. Holy Thursday Mass will be at 8:00 p.m. and the Good Friday Service will be held at 3:00 p.m. You can find our live stream at the Belen Jesuit YouTube channel
or on our Instagram page
. The Masses will be archived to those pages as well, and the link from YouTube will be shared on our Facebook page.
The Church has always recognized that there are circumstances that may keep the faithful from attending Mass. Sickness, inability to travel, etc. are examples of reasons that make it difficult to go to Mass. For this reason, we have spiritual communion, and while we cannot receive the body and blood of Jesus sacramentally, we can receive him spiritually in our hearts.
These are challenging times. For this reason, it is most important to keep praying and there is no more powerful prayer than the Eucharist.
