Fr. Summers is going to start Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, concluding it – when offered – with Benediction. This will start in Advent and – if it is attended – will continue for the duration of his time as our pastor.
However, we have a couple of practical decisions to make together in advance. On what day, at what time, and for how long do we schedule Adoration? Since we have not had this devotion here in many years, we ought to begin modestly, not biting off more than we, as a parish, are able to chew comfortably. Like all exercise, pious exercises, too, have to be “built up to.” We can’t pray all day if we can’t yet pray for one hour. Below is a link to a very basic survey we want you to answer in order to assist Fr. Summers in making this decision, because in this matter, as well as in all spiritual matters, he has only our best interests at heart.
