Eucharistic Adoration is the act of worshiping the Real Presence of Jesus in the consecrated Eucharist. The exposed Blessed Sacrament should never be left alone so it is necessary to have people committed to filling in the adoration schedule. We hope and pray that all parishioners will join us at some time during the hours of Adoration every month. Click here for more information on Adoration Ministry.

The Cursillo Movement provides a method of living a Christian life where one’s spirituality may be developed, lived, and shared. It begins with a Cursillo Weekend Retreat of daily celebration of the Mass, visits to the Blessed Sacrament, talks, meditations, and Christian fellowship. The goal of the weekend is to empower the “cursillista” to become a Christian leader in each of his or her environments. If you are interested in experiencing a Cursillo, please contact Donna Frys.
