YOUR PRAYERS are requested for all the hospitalized and home bound in our Christian community. THE ALTAR FLOWERS TODAY ARE in loving memory of Andrew & Loretta Bila from their family. EXPOSITION AND ADORATION OF THE MOST BLESSED Sacrament will begin after the morning Mass on Wednesday, October 16th and continue all day, ending with BENEDICTION at 8:00PM. St. Alphonsus Liguori wrote: “Of all the devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the Sacraments, the one dearest to God and the one most helpful to us”. The Eucharist is a priceless treasure: By not only celebrating the Eucharist, but also by praying before it outside of Mass, we are enabled to make contact with the very wellspring of Grace…” Please sign the chart in the vestibule of the church.
