Monday, October 2, 2023 7:00 PM – Chapel
Please join us for one hour before the Blessed Sacrament to pray for life. The hour will be led by Deacon Leo Gahafer. Hear our special guest speaker Jamie Oreffice. Jamie and her husband Andy have four children, two of whom are adopted. Jamie will share their adoption journey filled with questions, faith, fear and doubts, but most of all overwhelming joy, that led them to their two youngest children. Jamie and Andy are
passionate about adoption and have started the Catholics Adopt Project to help others realize the
gift of adoption.
Life at all stages is a gift from God—whether it is the life of the unborn in the womb or life outside the womb for those suffering from disabilities, abuse, or neglect. During this Holy Hour in front of the Blessed Sacrament, we will pray for the vast number of babies not allowed to be born, for the poor whose lives are made difficult, for men and women who are victims of brutal violence, for the elderly and the sick killed by indifference or out of misguided mercy. Our prayers may lift their spirits and perhaps even bring about a change in their condition, thereby bringing them peace.
We will pray aloud the Chaplet of Divine Mercy for their welfare and then continue in silent prayer for the remainder of the hour. If a priest or deacon is present he will offer Benediction with the Blessed Sacrament.
Most everyone knows of someone who is in need of prayer.—whether it be family, friends, or acquaintances. Please join us whenever you can during this important Holy Hour to bring them consolation and peace.
