Perhaps you are not aware that at St. Marianne Cope Parish, we are privileged to have two ways to take part in Eucharistic Adoration (outside of the Mass). In the chapel at St. Joseph's, we have had adoration daily for almost 28 years now.The schedule runs daily from 6am until Midnight. (From 6pm until Midnight, we are asking for two adorers an hour which is a perfect opportunity for husbands and wives, friends, siblings, co-workers, parish ministries, etc.)
Adorers often say taking this scheduled time for quiet reflection out of their hectic lives helps them grow in their love for Jesus and His Church and has the added benefit of strengthening their love and relationships with others to better live the Commandment "Love your neighbor as yourself". If you can commit on a weekly basis, please consider one of the hours below that are currently covered by substitutes. (We understand that weekly adorers are not available from time to time--or for extended periods and substitutes, fill in hours for others when you are available.)
If you would like to be on our schedule as a weekly adorer, please consider one of the below listed hours that are currently covered by substitutes
We are in need of a short-term substitute (a few weeks) on Tuesdays 3--4pm.
* A minimum of two adorers are required each hour from 6pm until Midnight.
More recently, our parish has begun the practice of Monthly First Friday Holy Hour, adoring Our Lord as a community at 3pm in the church at St. Joseph's. The holy hour includes Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, prayers, hymns, Scripture, and a reflection by our Presider, Deacon Tony Mercadel. The Holy Hour ends with Benediction. Please join us as often as you can for our parish First Friday Holy Hour. (No commitment necessary; just come.)
