Eucharistic Adoration

We have a need for people to commit to being at Adoration regularly for a specific hour. It does not need to be every week. Perhaps you can commit to a specific hour every other week, or once a month. Whatever your schedule, we would like to work with you! Call Char Pietrobon, Coletta Wortz, Patti Cogley or the parish office if you have questions.

Adoration opens on Mondays at 5am, and closes on Fridays at 4:45pm. Please feel free to stop by anytime during the week to spend some time with Jesus.

For weather or Holiday related hours, please call the parish office at 320-587-6507 and press the # button.
