     ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT

What is Adoration? 

The Blessed Sacrament is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ.  When the Blessed Sacrament is exposed or displayed in the Tabernacle, we must remember that Jesus is tangibly present and we are called to respond with adoration.

Adoration requires listening and being completely present to Jesus Christ.  

Being present before the Blessed Sacrament we experience Jesus’ infinite and assuring love for us, which we all need especially this time of the pandemic. As the holy scripture says, “Behold I will be with you always even to the end of the world,” because “I have loved you with an everlasting love, and constant is my affection for you.”
(Mt 28:20; Jer 31:3)

Starting February 21 at the 9:45am mass and every Sunday thereafter,
parishioners will take turns in bringing the Vocation Cross home for a week.  
Those who take the Cross will pray each day, the Vocation Prayer and the Rosary.
