Eucharistic Adoration Drive:
This Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th members of the Apostolate for Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration will speak at the Vigil and Sunday Masses about launching a new Adoration Drive for our weekly Eucharistic Adoration in the Parish. We are looking for parishioners to attend for one set hour of Adoration each week on an ongoing basis which would be a great blessing for those who volunteer and for the Parish. There will be cards available at each of these Masses to select your preferred chosen times. May we remind you that Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament takes place in the Day Chapel
- Each Sunday of Lent from 2p.m. to 5p.m.
- Every Monday from 9.30a.m. to 12 noon.
- Every Thursday from 7.00a.m. to 10 p.m.
