On November 7, 2004, the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish opened the Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel. In the years following, hundreds of people have had the privilege of personal prayer with Our Lord in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament 24 hours a day, seven days a week. What a blessing this has been for our parish and our parishioners.
The chapel is located behind the tabernacle. Entrance can be made from inside the main church area or there is an outside entry door near the north prayer garden gates at the northeast corner of the Cathedral building. Guests are welcome to stop in for a visit.
The doors are only locked at night when adorers have an entry code.
When in exposition, the Blessed Sacrament is never to be left unattended so parishioners have signed and committed to spend a weekly hour in prayer. Some hours have several adorers present while other hours have only one person in attendance. Having at least two people assigned for each hour allows for smoother coverage of back-ups and trades. If you are interested in signing up for a weekly holy hour contact Donna, 227-8452, or Blanca, 561-0433.
A rosary is led prior to the 5pm Mass on Saturday evening, the 9am Mass on Sundays and prior to the 9am Mass on Wednesdays. Rosary is also prayed regularly in some extended health care and independent living facilities. The rosary is led in Spanish prior to the Saturday 7pm Mass and the Sunday noon Mass.
The Chaplet of the Divine Mercy is prayed every Friday at 5pm in the Sacred Heart Daily Chapel.
The prayer request exists to take prayer requests for our parishioners and pass them on down the list to people who will pray specifically for these requests. Prayer is a vital part of our faith life and praying for one another is awesome way to minister to our church community. If you ever have a prayer request you can call Jeani 339-0872.
