Final Eucharistic Adoration of the Year, Friday, May 11

Friday, May 11, we will celebrate Eucharistic Adoration at the school. The day will begin with Mass at 7 a.m. in the chapel followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament for the entire school day. Eucharistic Adoration will close with Benediction at approximately 2:45 p.m . We would like to invite parents to sign up for a holy hour during the day to come and pray for the students, faculty, and staff. If you care to just drop in and make a visit to the chapel during the day, you may do that as well. 

Contact Bill or Mary Beth Hinger at bill.hinger@gmail.com or call 614-560-1555 with any questions. 

The intention of the upcoming Eucharistic Adoration is to pray for the members of our senior class as they discern their final post-secondary education plans, and in light of growing divisiveness in our world may our Church serve as a sanctuary for those who are fleeing political or religious persecution.
