From Pope John Paul II, Dominicae Cenae, Chapter 1, we read "The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic worship." Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration and contemplation that is full of faith.

The Adoration Chapel is located in the Holy Cross convent. Open hours: Friday 11:00 a.m. and Friday 4:00 p.m. For more information call 763-788-4729 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
