Eucharistic Adoration is a devotional practice in the Catholic Church in which Jesus, truly and fully present in the Blessed Sacrament (consecrated host), is adored by the faithful. Eucharistic Adoration extends from the Liturgy of the Mass during which the substance of bread is fully transformed into the substance of Christ -- Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity -- during consecration. Eucharistic Adoration is a time
of worship and communing with Jesus, praying silently or aloud with a group, and listening to His voice in the silence of our hearts. During adoration, the Blessed Sacrament is displayed in a monstrance, as in the photo to the right.
Weekly times of Eucharistic Adoration can be found in the box to the left. Hours are extended on every first Friday of the month starting at 9 AM and ending Saturday at 4 PM. Also note: the First Saturday of each month at 4:00PM.

The Rosary (from Latin rosarium, meaning "rose garden") is a popular and traditional Catholic devotion. The term denotes both a set of prayer beads and the devotional prayer itself, which combines prayer and meditation. The prayers consist of repeated sequences of the Lord's Prayer followed by ten prayings of the Hail Mary and a single praying of "Glory Be to the Father" and is sometimes accompanied by the "Oh my Jesus" prayer; each of these sequences is known as a decade. The praying of each decade is accompanied by meditation on one of the Mysteries of the Rosary, which are events in the lives of Jesus Christ and his mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. Please join us in the Chapel at the times listed below:

Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office, is a daily devotional obligation practiced by priests, Deacons and Religious. Lay Catholics are also encouraged to take part in the daily liturgy of morning, daytime, and evening prayers. These devotions consist of specific psalms, canticles, prayers, and scripture readings for each day that can be said or sung. Liturgy of the Hours are offered everywhere in the world and are one of the great sources of grace for those who pray them and for those being prayed for.
Lay Morning Prayer is offered Monday through Thursday and Saturdays at 8:30 AM in the Chapel.
Lay Evening Prayer is offered Monday through Thursday at 5:30 PM in the Chapel. All are welcome.
Devotion to Jesus as the Divine Mercy originates from the diary of Saint Faustina, a Polish nun who received a series of private revelations in the 1930s. In these revelations, Jesus asked Saint Faustina to tell all the world about His infinite mercy toward the souls of sinners. "My Heart overflows with great mercy for souls, and especially for poor sinners. If only they could understand that I am the best of Fathers to them and that it is for them that the Blood and Water flowed from My Heart as from a fount overflowing with mercy." Jesus implored sinners to place great trust in His fathomless mercy and promised those who pray the Divine Mercy Chaplet extraordinary graces in this life and at the hour of death.
The Divine Mercy Chaplet is a sequence of short prayers that are repeated using rosary beads as a guide. Offered Monday through Friday at 3 PM in the Chapel.
According to tradition, St. Luke wrote an icon of our Lady when she was living in Jerusalem and upon seeing the beautiful icon of herself holding the Child Jesus in her arms, she blessed both the artist and his work proclaiming "My grace will accompany this icon." The passage of centuries has proven that Mary did not forget this promise. So numerous were the miracles and favors granted by means of this Holy Icon, Pope Innocent III in 1207 stated that Mary's soul seemed to have entered into this icon. Pope Pius IX gifted the icon to the Redemptorist Order as a mission: "Make Our Mother of Perpetual Help known throughout the world." In the devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, we pay tribute to the Blessed Virgin Mary in asking for her assistance. In turn, she provides strength, comfort and even miracles to the faithful. Offered Thursday evenings after 6:30 PM Mass in the Chapel.
The Mission of the Prayer and Praise group is to continue a special flow of God’s outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Church that began in the late 1960’s and came to be called the Catholic Charismatic Renewal. Our Role in this Renewal can be summarized as proclaiming Jesus as Savior and Lord, facilitating Baptism in the Holy Spirit (Mt 3:11 and Acts 1:8), flowing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit (1Cor 12:4-11), and growing in the Fruit of the Holy Spirit, (Gal 5:22-23).
The Prayer and Praise Group Meets Sundays 6:30-9:00 pm in the Outreach Annex.
