SCHOOL ACTIVITIES & VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES
Adoration. Holy Hour! Here’s something that benefits everyone! Spending an hour in Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament fills our lives with innumerable graces. Jesus desires us; our love, our time, our praise. One hour a week is such a small gift to give back to Him. Your time in prayer honors Our Lord, and serves the greater community in a very special way. Contact Dick if you’d like more information or would like to schedule a weekly hour. (602-300-8562)
