Opportunities for Prayer
Opportunities for prayer in addition to our weekly and daily Masses. Each of these ministries/services offers an opportunity to volunteer.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Eucharistic Adoration is visiting and spending time in quiet prayer with Jesus present in the Eucharist. It is an expression of our love for Jesus, who loves us so much that He never wants to leave us and stays with us in the Blessed Sacrament. Adoration takes place each Wednesday in the Daily Chapel beginning at 8:00am, continuing until 6:30pm. Adoration is followed by Holy Hour from 6:30pm to 7:00pm. Sign up not required.
For information, please email Betsie Greiff at firstname.lastname@example.org
