Thanksgiving Project 2016 finishes eleventh consecutive year

Year of Mercy Ends

The Year of Mercy concluded with a trip to the Holy Doors at The Basilica of the National Shrine of Mary, Queen of the Universe. Participants of the Doors of Mercy Faith Enrichment class and others made the pilgrimage trip November 11.
 Bishop Noonan Calls us to Pray

All life is sacred as each one of us is made in the image and likeness of God.  We cherish each person as a child of God.  We pray for victims of violence and acts of terror...for their families and friends...and all those affected by such acts against God's love. We pray for the people of the city of Orlando that God's mercy and love will be upon us as we seek healing and consolation.  Every time we look at the Cross, we see how God has forgiven us in Christ – with a love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things; love never fails. We dry the tears of those who weep and mourn as gently as Veronica wiped the Lord’s bleeding face on the Via Dolorosa. May the Peace of Christ dwell within our hearts.

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ around the clock, 24/7/365.  Because Catholics believe that Christ is truly and substantially present in the Eucharist, the Blessed Sacrament is given the same adoration and devotion that is accorded to Christ.  We "watch and wait," we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Grace. The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms and blesses us.  Eucharistic Adoration is open to all. No training is needed and nothing is needed except an open heart.  You can volunteer for any hour during the week, a month or you can be part of the substitute list.  Contact Karen Rooney (863)224-5919
