Saturday Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Mass is celebrated every Saturday at 8:30 a.m. in Our Lady of the Rosary Chapel followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 9:00 a.m. until Benediction at 3:00 p.m. I have decided against having guardians responsible for specific time slots, however, it is my hope that many of you will feel called to be present at a certain time, at least on most Saturdays, for half an hour, or an hour, so that there will usually be someone in the chapel during the six hours of Exposition. When I was a seminarian in New Orleans (2009-2015), I received many graces from prayer before the Blessed Sacrament during the hours of 12:00 a.m. until 1:30 a.m., once weekly, the first hour and a half of every Sunday morning. This was my time with Jesus at Holy Name of Jesus Parish (near the seminary). The seminary Rector graciously allowed me to do this, dispensing me from curfew, so long as I was not late to Sunday morning prayer in the seminary chapel. The importance for my discernment to the priestly vocation of those hours spent in front of Our Lord cannot be overstated. What graces might be awaiting you when you spend a little time in silence with Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament? – Fr.Mark
