Eucharistic Adoration - Thursdays
Each Thursday from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, Saint Pascal hosts the place for quiet reflection - Eucharistic Adoration in Church. The purpose of Eucharistic Adoration is to give every Catholic an opportunity to spend time with our Eucharistic Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament. Everyone is welcome and invited to spend some time on Thursdays for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour or more if so desired. It calms one’s soul, brings peace to one’s heart and deepens one’s relationship with the Lord. Making time with Jesus may be the gift you can give yourself.
Saint Pascal now accepts online donations through GiveCentral.
