Church Reopening -- Phase 2
While the state has entered Phase 2 of the Reopening Process, we are still limited to 10 people gathering inside the church at this time. Bishop Zarama has said that parishes that have been doing livestream Mass should continue to do so.
Some have asked about outdoor liturgies as some local parishes have started doing. The outdoor limit for gathering is 25 so we are NOT going to proceed to that area either.
Weekday Masses (and Tuesday Communion) are OPEN but still limited to 10 people. You can reserve your seat at any of these by calling the parish office and having Cherie put you on the list.
The court may have determined that the Governor cannot regulate churches, but we must still follow the directives sent by Bishop Zarama.
Looking forward to the day when we can gather fully together again!!!
We plan to provide livestream Masses for Holy Week from St. Egbert Chapel according to the following schedule:
Sundays at 11 AM in English
Domingo at 1 PM en Espanol
To access the livestream, logon to YouTube.com and in the Search bar, type St. Egbert Catholic Church. You should find it by scrolling down and it will be the first or second piece on the list.
Livestream Music for May 31
Gathering Song -- Come, Holy Ghost
Come, Holy Ghost, Creator blest, And in our hearts take up thy rest;
Come with thy grace and heav'nly aid to fill the hearts which thou hast made,
To fill the hearts which thou hast made.
O Comforter, to thee we cry, Thou heav'nly gift of God Most High,
Thou fount of life and fire of love, And sweet anointing from above,
And sweet anointing from above.
Psalm -- Lord, Send Out Your Spirit
``Lord, send out your spirit and renew the face of the earth; Lord, send out your spirit and renew the face of the earth.''
Sending -- Go to the World
Go To the World! Go into all the earth, Go preach the cross where Christ renews life's worth,
Baptizing as the sign of our rebirth. Alleluia! Alleluia!
Go to the World! Go into every place! Go live the Word of God's redeeming grace.
Go seek God's presence in each time and space. Alleluia! Alleluia!
Spiritual Communion Prayer
This prayer from St. Alphonsus Liquori titled Act of Spiritual Communion is for those times when one cannot receive the Eucharist in a physical manner:
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.
Stewardship and Offertory
During this time of separation due to COVID-19 and the fact that we cannot gather for Word and Sacrament, the church still has expenses and obligations that need to be fulfilled. While we know and appreciate that some of our families are having some financial issues themselves, we ask that where it is possible that parishioners remember to send their donations to the church. You can signup for Online Giving by clicking the link below or by mailing them to the parish at 1706 Evans Street, Morehead City, NC 28557. We thank you for your assistance in helping us fulfill our obligations.
You can now make your offertory donations online by using the link below.
