Can You Spend an Hour with God?

Eucharistic Adoration

Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us".  During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist. By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be. Like a magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us. Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other, at the same time!" 

Parishioners are invited to come and adore our Lord.  Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will be in the Church on Tuesdays, immediately following Daily Mass in the Gym, from 8:00 AM until 12:30 PM.

Family Holy Hour

Jenny McPherson

On the second Tuesday of each month, a Family Holy Hour will be held from 10-11AM in the adoration chapel. Bring your child(ren) for 5 minutes or 30 minutes to talk to Jesus and find peace in his presence. Childcare will be provided so that a parent with multiple children may take one child at a time. From 10:30-11AM, parents will have the opportunity to spend time alone with Jesus while their child(ren) spend time coloring and reading books with the childcare staff.
