ADORATION 

When Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane, he asked his disciples to stay and keep watch with him. Can you spend one hour with the Lord watching over His Eucharistic presence on the Altar? During Adoration, Jesus, present in the Eucharist, should not be left alone. Please consider signing up for a time slot to be with the Lord. Adoration is every First Friday of the month from September through June.

The remaining 2021 dates are:  May 7 and June 4 (no adoration April 2nd-Good Friday)
Time slots needing coverage:  9-10AM, 10-11, 11-12PM, 12-1, 1-2, 2-3, 3-4. Benediction is at 4PM

You can sign up for a time slot on our Sign Up Genius at:

The sign up is to ensure someone is in the church consistently all day. If you go in to sign up and someone is already listed, you may still come during that time. If you cannot sign up via the internet, please contact Donna Broda at (484) 542-2750.
