Come Spend Some Time With Jesus in Adoration - We all know our world is a mess. We all say "What can I do?". You can pray and you do. But praying before the Blessed Sacrament is so powerful. It is so peaceful and calming to just sit with Jesus. Pray, read, listen, meditate. Come and spend some quiet time with Jesus and see what a difference it makes in your life. We can change things, one prayer at a time. There is Adoration every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 12 midnight in the Chapel in the Annex at Sacred Heart. Sign up for a set hour every week or just stop by. You will be blessed. For more information contact Debbie Barnard at (765) 299-6214.
