Eucharistic Adoration

We invite you to join us this coming academic  year as we celebrate Eucharistic Adoration at the school. Each month on a designated Friday, Eucharistic Adoration will begin with Mass at 7 a.m. in the chapel followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament for the entire school day.  Eucharistic Adoration will close with Benediction at approximately 2:40 p.m. We would like to invite parents, grandparents and alumni to sign up for a holy hour during the day to come and pray for the students, faculty, and staff.  If you care to just drop in and make a visit to the chapel during the day, you may do that as well.  Below is an online sign up form for your consideration. You may also contact Bill or Mary Beth Hinger at  or call  614-560-1555 .
