The original Perpetual Adoration Chapel opened in January 1995 and was housed in the Pre-K building. Recognizing this location was too small, a group of dedicated parishioners took the initiative and built the present day Chapel near the rear of the school building.
The Ascension of Our Lord Adoration Chapel is open to anyone wishing to spend time quietly in worship and prayer with Our Lord.
The Adoration Chapel provides a twenty-four hour, seven day a week place of prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. The Chapel only closes on Good Friday and reopens after the Holy Saturday Easter Vigil Mass.
Often it is hard to see how our personal, spiritual journey fits into our Catholic faith. Pope Francis reminds us, we must first personally encounter Christ to experience the richness of our faith in our lives.
Encountering Christ invites us to rediscover how our Catholic faith meets us where we are, and offers us a deeper sense of meaning and purpose in our daily lives. As a parish, we want to explore what it means to seek a real friendship with Jesus Christ. We want to reflect together on how our compassionate God knows our hearts and offers us lifelong companionship.
Dedicate renewed attention and resources from the archdiocese to enhance parish liturgies with more engaging preaching and music, offering an atmosphere of hospitality and welcome to people of all backgrounds and cultures.
Engage the disengaged in the life of the Church, including those who feel alienated, those who have been hurt and those who do not feel they are effectively cared for in the Body of Christ.
Pilot a ministry in several parishes in which parishioners go out two by- two in a spirit of evangelization, visiting every household and inviting people into a deeper life of faith. Establish a team to provide mall ministry and ministry in other public venues, inviting and welcoming people to the Church.
The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded by the Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882, it was named in honor of the mariner Christopher Columbus. Originally serving as a mutual benefit society to low-income immigrant Catholics, it developed into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, promoting Catholic education and actively defending Catholicism in various nations.
