Dear Parishioners and Friends of St. Pius X Parish,
The Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the monstrance during many hours of the week (from 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday; and from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Wednesday due to the parish Holy Hour in the Church from 6-7 PM). Whenever the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the monstrance it is necessary that someone be present.
We are blessed with a great number of parishioners who generously give of their time to keep regular hours of prayer in adoration. We are truly grateful for this valuable ministry that they have taken up.
Our goal is to have two committed adorers scheduled for every hour that the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the monstrance. However, there are still some hours that have not been filled completely. Having multiple adorers scheduled would relieve the burden of adorers having to find a substitute when they are unable to attend their hour.
We are asking every parishioner to prayerfully consider signing up for one of the following hours as a committed weekly adorer. If we are unable to fill all of the hours, we may have to consider reducing the amount of time during which the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in our chapel.
If you are able to fill an adoration hour, please call the parish office at 504-282-3332.
Fr. Pat Williams, Pastor
St. Pius X Church
