"Come to Me, all you who labor and are burdened and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
Over 200 of our parishioners have chosen to express their love for the Eucharist by participating in round-the-clock adoration, with the exception of Saturday night at midnight until Sunday at 3:00 p.m., of the Blessed Sacrament. Each adorer visits with the Blessed Sacrament for one hour once a week in Our Lady of the New Millennium Chapel. We are located in the Rectory, with our own separate entrance with handicap ramp. We are always in need of additional scheduled adorers. Whether you can commit to one hour a week, or you only have a few minutes to spare, the door is always open if you would like to spend some quiet time with the Lord.
Open hours for Adorers at the present times:
Monday: 3:00 am, 4:00 am and 5:00 am
Wednesday: 2:00 am, 3:00 am and 5:00 am
Thursday: 1:00 am, 2:00 am, 3:00 am, 4:00 am and 7:00 am
Friday: 8:00 pm (the 7:00 pm person will switch if that is better for you)
Saturday: 12:00 am, 1:00 am, 8:00 am, 11:00 am,12:00 pm and 6:00 pm
Contact Mary Kolb at 215-672-7005 to sign up for your adoration hour.
Thank you to our new adorers who have signed up for a Holy Hour!
In October we will have completed 17 years of Perpetual Adoration! All the Parish has benefited from the prayers offered up before the Blessed Sacrament. Hope we have another 17 years of constant prayer and Adoration offered up to God in and for our Parish!
All this is possible because of the generosity of our Adorers and visitors by contributing to the Chapel Fund and to our special collections and the wonderful support we get from Father Rymdeika. Just so you know, the Monstrance Case was Father's idea not mine! The chairs started with 2 chairs that Father wanted replaced and I asked if all the chairs could be replaced. He said yes! Thank you to everyone for keeping our Adoration Chapel running smoothly (still need some hours filled).
Come sit awhile.
Thanks to generous contributions by Chapel Adorers and others, we commissioned a large tabernacle to hold the monstrance for the Solemn Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. We also have new chairs in the chapel.
Why did we need to do this? Liturgical rules - as well as Canon Law - insist that, whenever there is prolonged period of exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, someone must always be present in adoration. This is why someone is scheduled in the chapel for every hour. However if there is an interruption, or this is not possible for some reason, the Blessed Sacrament needs to be reposed , or put away, into the tabernacle.
