The source and summit of our faith.
On the Feast of the Annunciation, March 25, 1992, Perpetual Adoration began for St. Peter Parish in the classroom 'chapel' while our Church was being completed. Since then, it has continued uninterrupted. Each day parishoners come to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to be near our savior and speak to Him with prayers from the heart. The best way to grow in one's faith in the Real Presence of Jesus is to spend time with Him in the Blessed Sacrament through Perpetual Adoration.
Each individual is invited to spend an hour a week with our Lord before the Tabernacle. The way one chooses to spend that hour is unique for each one's needs. Here are some suggestions: Read a few pages from a spiritual book and then allow time for meditation, pray a rosary or chaplet, converse with our Lord as you would to your best friend, offer prayers of thanksgiving, praise, adoration, or petition / pray the stations of the cross, or just sit in His presence and listen with your heart.
People can sign up for an hour of adoration by writing on the roster posted on the wall behind the SCRIP table in the Church lobby. We will contact you and answer any other questions you may have (we have substitutes for when you are out of town, etc…). We have had anywhere from 120 to 165 hours covered per week (168 hours in a week). We usually have 20-30 open hours to choose from at any time.
For those who are unable to commit to an hour a week, making a shorter visit (perhaps for just a few minutes) a few times a week is another way to benefit from the graces which flow from Jesus in the Tabernacle. For any further questions, feel free to contact Jim Bertrand, 421-7656.
