Mary, Mother of the Church began weekly Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the early 2000’s, under the leadership of parishioners Lee Yanta and Rita Burwell. Prior to his passing in 2020, Gordy Buermann, longtime member of our Worship Commission, served as Chair of an Adoration team that led the 2017 recruitment of over 300 adorers to support 24 - hour Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in our Chapel.
I, Fr. Jim, am grateful to Lee, Rita, Gordy and all who were instrumental in sustaining this initiative. The pandemic impacted our available hours, but we are now looking toward the future to rebuild a parishioner-led team, expand hours, and invite even more people to experience the presence of the Lord before the Blessed Sacrament.
Is the Lord calling you to help grow Eucharistic Adoration at Mary, Mother? I’m seeking people to join returning leaders to form a team that coordinates Adoration which includes communication, formation, recruitment, scheduling. Please contact Pastor Jim Perkl, [email protected] to learn more.
