For those who haven't had the opportunity, if there's anything you need to thank or praise God for, to express sorrow for, or to ask for, know that He waits for you to come and spend some time with Him present in the monstrance at our next Day of Eucharistic Adoration, Monday, July 2, 2007 from 9 AM to 7 PM. The day of adoration and prayer closes with Benediction at 7:00 PM. All are invited to join us any time during the day as well as for Benediction. We are in need of people to sign up for an hour of adoration, especially in the middle of the day. Please see the large sign-up poster in the back of church. The question is often asked, "What do I do during this one hour with Our Lord?" Some ideas would include the following: simple, quiet conversation with Jesus; praying the rosary, praying the Stations of the Cross; reading scripture slowly, thoughtfully, prayerfully; praying devotional prayers; journaling (writing down our thoughts, aspirations and prayers); prayerfully reading spiritual books or pamphlets. The parish provides some special prayer books for this devotion. The Worship Commission Prayer Requests To pray for our sick is an important privilege of our parish family. We hope that you will pray for these persons every day.
