Reawakens Faith!

24 Hours a Day  –  7 Days a Week
beginning Sunday – February 5, 2017
in the Divine Mercy Chapel
located in Presentation’s Parish Center

We invite and welcome you to visit Our Lord, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. Dedicated adorers are needed to take
an hour each week during the day or throughout the night, seven days a week.

This hour that Jesus wants you to spend with Him is spent any way you want – with your own favorite prayer book, reading the Holy Bible, praying the Holy Rosary, speaking to Jesus heart to heart, as one does with a friend; or you may be so tired, troubled, or worn out, that you may want to just sit, and relax, and enjoy the sweet peace that comes from simply being with the one who loves you the most, Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament. What hour can you give to our Lord each week?

Submit your name and time commitment to: Barb Kleiter here.
