First Friday Adoration

Friday, October 3rd 1 - 3 pm Jones Chapel

Eucharistic Adoration is a form of prayer that is getting more attention these days. Adoration is simply spending time in the presence of Jesus. Adoration is for anyone who wishes to come.

Each first Friday of each month, Eucharistic Adoration will be held in the Jones Chapel from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. There will always be someone there during these hours. Adoration is silent can meditate, contemplate, reflect on the mystery of God in our midst...again, this form of prayer is simply spending time in the presence of Jesus.

If you have any questions, or want to learn more, please feel free to contact Alice Miller Nation at

Feast of St. Francis

let's celebrate October 5 at both Masses

For pet lovers, we know how much an animal enriches our lives. This is our family dog Bonnie. She is not quite one year old and yet she makes us laugh and cry (sometimes all in the same day!) ...can not tell you how many chairs and cupboards she has chewed...

On Sunday, October 5th, at both Masses, we are going to do a Virtual Pet Blessing. Bring a picture of your pet ( it can be on your phone or an old school hard copy!) At the end of Mass we will bless our pets and hand got it ANIMAL CRACKERS! Join the fun!
