Following the 8:30 a.m. Mass on Friday through Noon, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for continuous adoration in the chapel. Benediction is celebrated at Noon. Participants offer to commit to an hour of adoration at the same time each week. If you are unable to commit to a specific hour each week you can then choose to be a substitute and offer to visit the Blessed Sacrament when called upon. Subs are just as important to us as permanent participants because they help to ensure that the Blessed Sacrament is never left alone during the adoration period. This hour each week strengthens our faith and gives us the opportunity for quiet reflection and meditation away from our busy and hectic lives.
Sign up by calling Joanne Kormos at 703-524-5722.
