Eucharistic Adoration

Every Monday in the church from 9:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. we have the opportunity to spend time and be in the presence of Christ in the Eucharist.  To insure that the Eucharist is always attended, a coordinator keeps an hourly list of the faithful who will agree to be there at a specific time.  All the faithful however, are welcome on a regular or irregular basis.  Contact Dianne Rose at 616-538-9013.
