NEW CHAPEL NOW OPEN
Visit the Blessed Sacrament in our new Chapel. The main church is closed for daily Mass and Adoration for the summer. We have opened the newly appointed chapel space in the Social Hall of the Church. The reason is to save the cost of air conditioning the church during the week. Mass and adoration will be in the new chapel. We were able to donate our long pews to St. Anthony of Padua in San Antonio who were happy to pick them up for use in their church. Fr. Schneider from St. Stephen’s will move to their new church in July and has offered for us to receive some of the chairs from their former church. Actually, the move in addition to saving money we hope will remind people to come and visit the Blessed Sacrament and enjoy the intimacy of the chapel. We have a wonderful community that gathers each day of the week to celebrate Morning Prayer and Mass followed by the rosary and chaplet of Divine Mercy. Let us know of your interest for other prayer opportunities during the summer. Christ is there to receive our homage and praise.
