Imagine if hundreds of men at your parish decided to RISE up and take their faith more seriously. It would change families, your parish, and the world. RISE gives all men the tools needed to live faithful, more joyful lives. See a video introduction to RISE below.

Located at 51 Patent Road, Peru, NY, Mother Cabrini Shrine is a magnet for pilgrimages, meditation, walks, prayer and peace.

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament:
Jesus calls to you: "Could you not watch one hour with Me?"
"In this silence of the white hose, 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.

MEN RISE UP!
An extraordinary journey for the men in our parish (the men in your lives).
Men: It's time to RISE! This powerful movement is coming to our parish on February 4th, 2019.
Five (5) minutes a day will change your life!
As men we’re under a lot of pressure, at work and at home. Whether you’re single, a father with kids at home, married with no kids at home, divorced or widowed, we all need help balancing the demands of each day. But not only that, we’re supposed to be living life to the full, and finding joy even amidst the grind of work and family life. I want to personally invite you to take a 30-Day Challenge with me and the men of our parish called RISE. It only takes about 5 minutes each morning, but it will give you the tools you need to take your life and relationships to the next level. [Please see me in the narthex, to sign up – or – please visit menriseup.org and sign up for the February 4th start date. The link is in the bulletin or simply click the "FIND OUT MORE" box below.
