Catholic Community Adoration Chapel of the Most Holy Cross
  Uninterupted adoration at a time most convenient for you. Come spend five minutes, or an hour or more, with Jesus.  ALL are welcome.
  **  Donations  for the Adoration Chaple Building Fund are accepted at the parish office or the OFFERING box in the chapel (west wall near door).  Envelopes are available in the parish office and at all church entrances for the convenience of placing donations in the Sunday collection basket.  **

The "Catholic Community Adoration Chapel of the Most Holy Cross" is open to ALL who want to meet Jesus in a quiet and solumn surrounding.  The chapel is LARGE and small at the same time: large enough to comfortably accomodate 20 or so adorers, yet small enough for one to feel a personal intimacy with our Lord in prayer.  Visit the chapel during weekdays from 6AM to 5:30PM, or stop by the office to learn about 24/7 access.  It`s more beautiful in person.  Come in; don`t be shy; He knows your name and is expecting you.

CENACLES OF LIFE
  The Cenacles of Life prayer grouop meets every Friday at 12 Noon in the Catholic Community Adoration Chapel of the Most Holy Cross to pray two rosaries to end aboration. Everyone is welcome. The benefits are unimaginable.
