Pray For The Deceased Priests Of The Diocese Who Celebrate Their Anniversary Of Death This Week:
Pray For Our Catechists:
Bless these men and women who have responded to your call to the ministry of catechesis. May they be filled with zeal for your Church, with care for those they catechize, and with love for your Word of Life. Let your Spirit come upon them so that your Word may echo through their teaching and through the witness of their lives. Through our catechists, may the members of our parish whom they teach be transformed into witnesses to your Word. And may these catechists receive the blessing your Son promised to all who labor in your vineyard. We pray to you, gracious Father, in the name of your Son, Jesus, the Word of Life, and in the unity of the Holy Spirit who transforms us by that Word, one God, forever and ever. Amen.

What do you actually do during adoration?
You may sign up to be an "adorer" which allows you to schedule yourself for one or more hours per week to pray before the very presence of Our Lord, exposed in the monstrance. It means that you can have some time alone with Jesus to recite your favorite prayers, read the bible, contemplate acts of faith, hope, charity, thanksgiving, reparation, pray a rosary or do whatever type of prayerful devotion that suits you before Our Lord.
You can just sit and say nothing simply keeping Him company, just as you would with a dear friend.
- Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick
Please call Fr. Max or the parish office if you or your family member is sick or will be hospitalized and wants to receive the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick.
Adoration is every Wednesday from 9:00 – 4:00 pm. Thank you to all adorers who sign up every week. A sign-up sheet is on the table in front of the chapel. Stop in and spend some quiet time with our Lord. Please use the bell tower entrance.
