Saint Celestine Parish offers Eucharistic Adoration on the First Friday of the month in the Church and Blessed Sacrament Chapel.
We begin at 9 am in the Church and then process singing O Salutaris Hostia to the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, which will be open all day for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
Join us at 3 pm for the Divine Mercy Chaplet in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel.
At 7 pm the Knights of Columbus will led us in the rosary honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe.
Our closing prayers will begin at 7:45 pm in the Chapel with Benediction of the Sacrament and the Litany to the Sacred Heart.
We will then process to the church singing Holy God, We Praise Thy Name for the return of the Blessed Sacrament to the tabernacle.
In adoration, the consecrated Host is exposed in a “monstrance” which is an elaborate and sacred vessel. The large Host is placed in a glass enclosure called a “luna”, which is placed in the monstrance on the altar so that people may come and spend time with the Lord, Jesus Christ. We are invited into an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. He is most present in the Eucharist, where he waits for us and invites us to spend time with Him. In the silence of adoration, the Lord sometimes speaks to us, assuring us of His love for us and His presence in our lives. Other times he remains silent. In those times, we can stay with Him and place our lives in His hands.
We live in a time of great trial and challenge. Please come to Church and Blessed Sacrament Chapel on First Fridays and spend time with the Lord.
Could you find some time to stop by during this day? You are invited to spend time with Jesus present in the Eucharist during Adoration:
8 am - Mass
9 am - Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
3 pm - Divine Mercy Chaplet
7 pm - Rosary honoring Our Lady of Guadalupe
7:45 pm - Benediction
The Blessed Sacrament should not be left unattended so we need volunteers to commit to regular half hour or hourly watch. Please consider signing up by choosing a time slot on the schedule located in the back of the church. Come join us, even if for just an hour or ten minutes in prayer.
Ecclesiastes Chapter 3: 1-8
There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens. A time to be born and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to uproot the plant. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to tear down, and a time to build. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones, and a time to gather them; a time to embrace, and a time to be far from embraces. A time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away. A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to be silent and a time to speak. A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
When do we have time to pray?
When do we just “listen”?
Listen to what?
Listen to the Lord.
It’s difficult to do with today’s noise of I-pods, text messages,
TV, cell phones etc., etc., etc.
Come, spend time to just “LISTEN” to the Lord
and pray in the silence of Eucharistic Adoration!
