Thank you to everyone who signed forms indicating a willingness to participate in our on-going Eucharistic Adoration program. We are now in the process of determining its breadth and scope and will announce its implementation in a couple of weeks. At this point, we believe there will be adoration twice a week in each parish for a few hours at a time. Let’s pray that we are successful in bringing this about.
