EUCHARISTIC ADORATION NEW YEAR SCHEDULE
We will not have Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on New Year’s Day or on the Friday after New Year’s Day. 

Eucharistic Adoration will resume on Sunday, January 4, 2015 immediately following the Noon Mass.

Regular hours are:
Sundays: After the Noon Mass until 4:00pm
Thursdays: 8:30am-4:00pm
Fridays: After the 8:00am Mass until 3:00pm

Christ prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane, contemplating the suffering He would endure on our behalf. He was disappointed that His disciples could not spend one hour with Him. How often have we thought that if we had been there we could have spent that hour? Now we can. We are privileged to have EUCHARISTIC ADORATION at St. Lawrence Blessed Sacrament Chapel Thurs. and Fri. 8:30am-4:00pm and Sun. 1:00-4:00pm. Please come whenever you can. For those interested in weekly adoration: you will have the opportunity in the next few weeks to sign up for a weekly time slot or as a sub. Watch for a signup board in the narthex.

One of the last acts Jesus performed on Earth was the institution of the Holy Eucharistic so we can be with Him on Earth, until in His infinite mercy, He calls us Home to be with Him for eternity.

Each Thursday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. He is present in exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in the St. Lawrence Chapel. He is there. He really is. Will you be?

What to you actually do during adoration? You may sign up to be and “adorer” which allows you to schedule yourself for one or more hours per week to pray before the very presence of Our Lord, exposed in the monstrance. It means that you can have some time alone with Jesus to recite your favorite prayers, read the bible, contemplate acts of faith, hope, charity, thanksgiving, reparation, pray a rosary or do whatever type of prayerful devotion that suits you before Our Lord. You can just sit and say nothing simply keeping Him company, just as you would with a dear friend.
