Thank you for joining our faith community!
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.
(excluding November 27th) from 7:00 - 8:30 pm in the music room.
Mark Plummer, a cantor and Associate Professor of Music at Aurora University, will once again be directing the choir.
Anyone who likes to sing is more than welcome to join the choir. Show up on Thursdays with a friend and be ready to sing.
For information, call Linda Fandrich at: (630) 896-9116.
