Adoration hours to expand

We are excited to be preparing to move to Perpetual Adoration (24 hours a day, seven days a week) at the start of the Easter season.

Would you consider becoming a regular adorer? Perhaps you’ve been on our substitute list or have considered becoming an adorer in the past? Maybe you’ve even considered stopping by the South Church to pray, but have some questions? We would love to speak with you. Please contact the Adoration Committee for information.

We are looking to fill the hours between 3 p.m. Friday until 12 p.m. Sunday. Perhaps you can do twice a month or a different day/time commitment works? Please prayerfully discern where you may be called. We thank you in advance for the support of this beautiful blessing in our parish.

Over the coming weeks, we want to share with you some of the powerful reflections our adorers have offered on how meaningful Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament has been in their lives.

Adoration reflection           

Adoration has helped me see God’s blessings in every day moments. I always leave Adoration feeling like I have someone with a hand on my shoulder guiding me through my day. During one of my first Adoration visits I was praying for my family members. My husband was commuting over an hour to work, my little kindergartner was having a hard time sitting still, and my little baby wasn’t sleeping well. I felt unsettled and I prayed for God to help me trust in him. Well, my husband received a job offer in town that day, my son got all his stickers at school, my baby took a nap, the sun was shining. Before going to Adoration, I would have called this a “lucky” day, but I knew where to give credit where it was due this time. God is always with us trying to show us his love and grace. Adoration helps open our hearts and see his love. I can’t recommend that feeling of comfort and peace enough. ~ Ceci Bassindale
