In September of 2015, our dream to build a Perpetual adoration Chapel became Phase III of our Honoring Our Roots, Cultivating Our Future capital campaign.
WHAT IS PERPETUAL ADORATION?
Adoration is a style of prayer and opportunity for quiet time in the presence of Jesus in the Eucharistic Host displayed in a vessel called the Monstrance (meaning “to show”). There is no right or wrong way to do it. You sit or kneel. You silently recite prayers like the rosary, you pray silently in your own words, you read scripture or other spiritual materials, or you simply sit quietly in God’s presence and listen. Lives are changed by the regular practice of spending time in a holy hour (or half hour or 20 minutes or 10 minutes) in quiet consciousness of the presence of God. The key word is SILENCE. We all need more silence in our noisy lives. Perpetual Adoration is the opportunity for a parish to have someone in prayer in the chapel 24 hours per day 7 days per week. It changes lives and it changes parishes.
The construction costs for this project are funded, but furnishings, décor, security, and other expenses will require interested donors to offer a gift of financial support. You can contribute and sign up on the Adoration schedule to commit to time with the Blessed Sacrament here.
Our current projection is for the construction to be complete in August or September. Watch the bulletin and Flocknote emails for specific details as we get closer to completion and opening.
