Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament:

Jesus calls to you:  "Could you not watch one hour with Me?"


"In this silence of the white host, carried in the monstrance, are all His words; there is his whole life given in offering to the Father for each of us; there is also the glory of the Glorified Body, which started with the resurrection, and still continues in heavenly union." 

 [Pope John Paul II, Angelus Address]


"What will convert America and save the world?  My answer is prayer.  What we need is for every Parish to come before Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in Holy Hours of Prayer."

~Mother Teresa of Calcutta


Adoration is held each Friday beginning directly after morning Mass and closing with Benediction at 7:00 p.m.  Please join us and strengthen your relationship with Christ Jesus and simply sit in reverence with our Lord.
