St. Katherine of Siena Adoration Chapel Needs You!


The Adoration Chapel Needs You!
(The Chapel is located on the side of the rectory facing the Church)

The Adoration Chapel at St. Katherine's is cordially open to all. It is a place where our most personal prayers may be offered to Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament. The chapel is open every day and evening to accommodate individual schedules. Presently, we are in need of people to commit to one half hour time slot per week or one hour slot per week to be with the Lord in quiet prayer.
The Blessed Sacrament should never be left alone. It is always pleasing to God for his children to visit for awhile without an assigned time. However, the Adoration Chapel must have enough assigned individuals each day so that the chapel is never empty. I can assure you, the graces and blessings received at the chapel are tremendous. In fact, our chapel is often called the Miracle Chapel!. 

Please call Carole Hall at 215-637-3160 (email: [email protected]) to discuss a day and time suited to you. Remember, only one day, either one half hour or one hour time slot. It will be a time of peace and heart-to-heart conversation with our Lord. Thank you and God bless you.
