Perpetual Adoration requires a dedicated space in which adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is happening 24 hours per day, 365 days of the year.
The Chapel is used only for adoration, eliminating any interruptions to the scheduled prayer hours.
Eleven years ago this October, St. Isidore began First Friday 24-hour Eucharistic Adoration. It has become a cornerstone of the parish prayer experience for both group ministries and individuals. Many have participated and continue to do so. The desire to grow this ministry to Perpetual Adoration in its own dedicated space has become financially reachable at a much lower cost than previously projected.
A recent recalculated cost per square foot to the original plan has given us a new projected cost of $440,000. This amount is $110,000 (17%) lower than the original $550,000 estimate to build the 1,114 square foot Chapel. The adjustment has no bearing on current parishioner pledges.
After a recent bequest, the remaining amount is a goal of $220,000. As of June 30, $151,900 has been pledged and $68,100 is still needed.
Donations of any amount will be welcomed on the parish website for “online giving” (www.stisidoreparish.org) or at the parish office.
Please, prayerfully discern if God is calling you to be a part of this prayer ministry with your financial support.
