During this time of suspended public Masses, there are a number of places, both within the diocese and outside of it, where Mass is available via livestream.
A prayer of Spiritual Communion may be made at the appropriate time of the Mass, or at any time of the day or multiple times of the day:
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. Amen.
Here are available and planned livestreams known at the moment. An updated list will be available on the diocese’s main Coronavirus page.
