Spending Time With Jesus: As Catholics, we’re blessed with the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. On the First Friday of each month, we offer our Nocturnal Adoration devotion, providing a graced opportunity to spend time with Jesus, your Lord and Savior, during a time of Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on our altar between the hours of 8pm and midnight. The 8pm hour concludes with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. Blessed Mother Teresa said:
“The time you spend with Jesus is the best time you will spend on earth.” You’re invited to view “Grace in the Real Presence,” a moving video. It features a young recently ordained priest, a lifelong Catholic woman, and a recent convert to the Catholic faith. Each offers their perspective on what the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist means to them. Well worth four minutes of your time. Then spend the best time you’ll spend on earth by spending some time with Jesus during our monthly First Friday devotion any time between 8pm and midnight. You’ll be glad you did. Our next Adoration will be Friday, February 6, 2015.
Our Church is on street level and easily accessible for the elderly or handicapped.
