Perpetual Adoration

Please visit our table in the Atrium on Sun, Jun 23, The feast of Corpus Christi.

We need your help in filling the few hours left that we only have one adorer. The hours in need are: Sundays, 3:00-4:00 pm; Mondays, 3:00-4:00 am; Tuesdays, 1:00-2:00 am, 2:00-3:00 am; Wednesdays, 2:00-3:00 am, 3:00-4:00 am; Fridays, 4:00-5:00 pm. If you want to adore at any other hour, we welcome 3, 4, or more at all hours. Our Lord has an open door policy; He will welcome you along with the existing adorers.

"In our self-centered culture and classic American emphasis on work, we often feel we have to accomplish something during our times of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. We rate our experience by how 'good' our prayer was, how heartfelt our devotion was, or how focused we could remain. Yet prayer and contemplation are fundamentally God's work, in which we are invited to participate. We need only to give Him the opening and He will do the rest. By coming to adoration, we are handing Him the keys to our hearts, allowing the rays of His love and grace to bathe our souls in the light of His Presence, as the rays of the sun bathe our bodies in light. If we can take the time to pull away from the busyness and distractions of life and just sit at His feet, He will lead us."
