Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time.  In today’s Gospel we read of the great crowds that wished to be with JESUS.

Today our Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship.  JESUS awaits us in this sacrament of love.  Let us not refuse the time to go to HIM in adoration, in contemplation, full of faith.  Let us be open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes in the world.  Let our adoration never cease.

Open Hours: Monday 4:00 PM; Tuesday 11:00 AM; Tuesday 12:00 Noon;  Wednesday 5:00 PM; Thursday 2:00 PM; Friday 1:00 PM. 

The Adoration Chapel will be closed July 19 - 26.
