ABLAZE HOLY HOUR - Friday, August 28 at 7:00 PM Join us for a night of deep encounter with Our Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament. We will begin with Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in our beautiful candlelit church, guided by gifted musicians in prayerful worship led by the Spirit. Jesus is then brought to each person by Fr. Mulholland for a personal encounter; to touch the veil of our Lord. We will conclude with solemn Benediction with chant and incense. Come and experience the blaze of Jesus' love for you.
Let's leave our burdens, distractions, and busy schedules at the door and simply listen...
