2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Behold, the Lamb of God.”

Introducing: Encounter

I’m very excited to announce this weekend a new parish opportunity I have been looking forward to starting since I arrived.  On Friday, January 26th, we will host our very first parish adoration event called: Encounter.

Growing up, Eucharistic Adoration, especially with music and communal prayer, was a very powerful way that I encountered God and experienced His love.  My hope is that many of you will attend this event and also experience God’s presence and love for you in a powerful way.

Encounter will be a time of Eucharistic Adoration, but perhaps in a way you have never experienced before.  There will be praise and worship music played.  And for this first event, not only will I be playing, but some friends of mine will be joining me to help lead very beautiful music.

There will be many, many candles, making a very beautiful, prayerful, and meditative atmosphere.

And we will conclude with Benediction, including bells and incense and all.

Encounter is open to all.  I hope young and old, families and singles, will all attend this wonderful event.

A few weeks ago, Fr. Barnes and I did a pulpit swap to talk about adoration and encourage our parishes to participate in this wonderful opportunity to be with Jesus.  I hope you take advantage of this time to spend with the Lord and encounter his love.  Encounter will be held monthly (on the 4th Friday when possible).

I hope you will plan to attend.  And please invite your friends (even non-parishioners and non-Catholics may attend!)
