Church News and Announcements

On September 30 at 5 pm, all are welcome to join us in gratitude and prayer as we celebrate an Inaugural Blue Mass for first responders (and their families) from our community.

We pray for those in law enforcement, emergency management and fire safety, remember those who have fallen, and support those who serve.

The “Blue Mass” is a tradition where the Police, Fire and EMS Responder personnel gather for a special celebration and blessing for their work on behalf of the community.

History of the “Blue Mass:” In 1934, a Catholic Priest by the name of Thomas Dade from Baltimore initiated the Catholic Police and Firemen’s Society while stationed at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Washington, D.C.   About 1,100 police and firemen dressed in blue uniforms marched into St. Patrick’s Catholic Church for the celebration of the first “Blue Mass” on September 29, 1934.  Since then, the “Blue Mass” has become a tradition in which the local community gathers to celebrate and thank those who serve their community as policemen and women, firefighters, and EMS responders as well as to offer prayers to God for their continued protection.

Restore, Refresh, Renew ~ Acknowledge, Accept, Adore

If you've never been to Adoration, give it a try. An hour in quiet contemplation will provide more physical and spiritual good than you realize. 

Remove yourself from secular, mundane things. Focus on your spiritual relationship with God. Freed from distractions, and before the Blessed Sacrament, you will find yourself in the physical presence of Christ; aware that He is there, at that moment, with you.

You may not walk out of there with the answers to all of the problems that have been weighing you down, but you will walk out of there feeling more refreshed in body and soul than when you went in.

All are welcome from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m daily. For security reasons, only scheduled adorers will have access to the chapel from 10:00 p.m. - 5:00 a.m.

We have a new online scheduling system, that makes it easy to sign up, and manage your schedule. See below:
