FIRST FRIDAY EUCHARIST ADORATION
Our Parish celebrates the Exposition, Adoration & Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament every First Friday of the month from 7:00PM – 5:00AM, when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed all night. We don’t have First Friday Eucharistic Adoration in April because it’s Good Friday. Our next First Friday Eucharistic Adoration will be May 01st, 2015!
