  • Weekly Novena to Our Mother of Perpetual Help – The Eucharist is exposed on the altar at 7:00pm and confessions are heard from 7-7:30pm. The novena prayers and benediction begin at about 7:30pm until about 8:00pm. Please consider attending and bringing your needs and prayers to the attention of the Blessed Mother who always hears our prayers and desires to lead us to the loving heart of her son, Jesus Christ.
  • Our monthly afternoon of Eucharistic Adoration is held on the last Sunday of each month, we expose the Blessed Sacrament at the close of the 12:00 Noon Mass and have adoration from 1 pm until 5 pm.  Solemn Vespers with the Cathedral Schola and Benediction take place at 5 pm.  I encourage you to stop in and pray before the Blessed Sacrament.  There are great fruits that come to all who make a vigil of prayer in the presence of Jesus in the Eucharist.  It is important that our children and young people learn the importance of this prayer and engage in devotion to the Holy Eucharist.  Please join us for prayer and worship.
