All Parish Activities
The Year of the Eucharist invites Catholics throughout the diocese to deepen their understanding of the Eucharist. One way to do so is to attend and participate in Eucharistic-based prayer experiences offered by parishes. Worship of the Blessed Sacrament outside of the Mass is a worthy way to encounter the Lord’s presence and to deepen our faith. Please consider attending the First Thursday Holy Hour on Thursday, September 7 at 7:00pm at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament. This time of prayer will consist of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, recitation of the Rosary and Evening Prayer (we will celebrate the Church’s Feast of the Birth of the Blessed Virgin Mary). The hour will conclude with Benediction. The invitation is extended to all people. Please come….and invite some friends. For more information, please contact Fr. Matthew Jones (E: email@example.com or P: 271-7240, Ext. 120)
