Updated 8/22/13: Archbishop Michael Sheehan consecrated our Adoration Chapel on Friday, the 16th of August. After morning Mass on the 17th, Father Leo led a procession to the new chapel where he placed the Blessed Sacrament in the Eucharistic Altar. Henceforth, the Adoration Chapel is open to all who wish to spend time in private adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.
Thanks to all the donors who made this dream come true. May God spoil you with His abundant goodness.
Those who intend to visit daily, or even weekly, will be given a fob to enter the chapel. Anyone who wishes to simply visit now and then, will be issued a “loaner fob” which may be placed in a lock box as you leave the chapel. Adoration Chapel fobs may be received after filling out an application for through Jolene Dow at the Gift Shop, Monday-Friday from 9:30am to 4:30pm.

Updated 7/07/13: By the time you read this announcement our Adoration Chapel will have been completed. It would be impossible to host an open house because the Chapel is quaint, holding only 20-24 people. Yes, it is small but extremely beautiful. What we plan to do is to have volunteers open the Chapel on Monday morning, July 8th, Tuesday, July 9th and Wednesday July 10th from 9:30am-1pm. If anyone is interested in viewing the Chapel before it officially opens, please plan to visit on these three days.
If you just happen by the Multi-Purpose Building please ask a staff member to accompany you to the Chapel. We'd all be happy to do so. We're quite proud of it - as you should be! We would like to thank the parishioners who paid for the Chapel. We did not use parish general funds for this spritual treasure. All donations were given privately for the sole purpose of building this Adoration Chapel.
Thanks to all of you who have been so generous!
Updated 6/22/13: The Adoration Chapel is nearly complete! Please enjoy the beautiful images of the Chapel, thus far.
