EUCHARISTIC ADORATION:   Listen to what the Pope John Paul II said: "The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic worship”. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration. Notice how the Holy Father is asking you to be generous with your time. He is not asking for your money but something much more precious – your time. We invite you to come spend time with Jesus. Adorers are Needed. Please contact Stasia for scheduling 386-574-2131.

EXPERIENCE LOVE &  ACCEPTANCE BY COMING HOME TO THE  CATHOLIC CHURCH. 
There’s an old saying that goes, “Once a Catholic, always a Catholic.” Maybe you have been away from the Church for a little while or for quite some time, but now you feel a tug at your heart calling you back to the Catholic Church. Listen to that tug. It’s your Heavenly Father reaching his arms out to you, the Holy Spirit whispering in your ear, hoping to draw you home. 
We hope you accept this as your invitation to rediscover the truth, wonder and mystery of the Catholic faith. As your brothers and sisters in our worldwide Catholic family, we want you back. We’ve missed you, and our Church is not the same without you. 
Regardless of why you left or got out of the habit of going to Mass, you can always come home and return to the practice of the sacraments and the fullness of relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church He founded. We are Catholic. Welcome home.
