Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament takes place outside of the Mass and stimulates the faithful to the presence of Christ through closer union with Him. Devotion consists in the exposition (the sacred host displayed on the altar in a monstrance) and concluding benediction.
Traditionally, two adorers are present continuously at exposition, and, if a parish wishes to continue this devotion, it is essential that parishioners commit themselves to specific periods of time to assure continuous presence. Visitation during exposition provides a unique individual time of meditation since prayer at the exposition is silent.
Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is held on the first and third Thursday of the month (if no funerals are scheduled) following the 8:30 Mass until noon.
Cenacle
The word “cenacle” refers to the upper room where Jesus and his followers shared the Last Supper. This organization invokes this biblical reference to connote a room filled with prayer. A cenacle is a home prayer group whose members pray together. It is simple, spontaneous, quiet, and caring. It is structured to invoke the Holy Spirit, to recite the Rosary and other prayers to Our Lady, and to pray for the Holy Father. The groups share prayer intentions and meditation.
Daily Rosary
The rosary is recited every day before the 8:30 a.m. Mass.

Divine Mercy Chaplet
The Chaplet of Divine Mercy is said every Tuesday morning after the 8:30 a.m. Mass. From The Divine Mercy website: http://www.thedivinemercy.org we read: “The message of The Divine Mercy is simple. It is that God loves us all of us. And, he wants us to recognize that His mercy is greater than our sins, so that we will call upon Him with trust, receive His mercy, and let it flow through us to others. Thus, all will come to share His joy. The Divine Mercy message is one we can call to mind simply by remembering ABC:

A – Ask for His Mercy. God wants us to approach Him in prayer constantly, repenting of our sins and asking Him to pour His mercy out upon us and upon the whole world.

B – Be merciful. God wants us to receive His mercy and let it flow through us to others. He wants us to extend love and forgiveness to others just as He does to us.

C – Completely trust in Jesus. God wants us to know that the graces of His mercy are dependent upon our trust. The more we trust in Jesus, the more we will receive.

This message and devotion to Jesus as The Divine Mercy is based on the writings of Saint Faustina Kowalska, an uneducated Polish nun who, in obedience to her spiritual director, wrote a diary of about 600 pages recording the revelations she received about God’s mercy. Even before her death in 1938, the devotion to The Divine Mercy had begun to spread.

Padre Pio Prayer Group
DESCRIPTION:
Padre Pio, known to be a very humble man, was gifted the stigmata for 50 years. He had the ability to bi-locate. In the confessional he reminded you about the sins you forgot to confess and he also had the ability to see into the future. When Pope John Paul II was a young priest he traveled from Poland to Italy to make confession to Padre Pio.
