Eucharistic Adoration Adorers Needed

"Could you not watch one hour with me?" Matthew 26:40
Have you recently visited Jesus in our newly redecorated Adoration Chapel? What better way to prepare for Christmas than spending an hour each week adoring Jesus this Advent. If you can commit to a regular weekly hour, please come whenever you can or sign up to be on our substitute list. We like to schedule two adorers each hour in case one can't make it. Most of our hours from 10:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. have only one adorer. Jesus would be delighted if you'd sign up as a second person on any of these hours. We are currently in desperate need of someone to take the Monday 11:00 a.m. hour. Please call the Parish Office if you would to ba an adorer.
