The Holy Day of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is always August 15, falls on a Saturday this year and thus is not an obligation. We nevertheless will honor Our Lady this year with extra prayer.
We will have a special Holy Hour of Adoration at 7 PM on Friday, August 14 at St. John the Baptist Church and all night Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 8:00 PM Friday through 8:30 AM Saturday.
Signups are open to everyone for all for the 7PM Holy Hour. During all-night Adoration, we need 1 or 2 people to cover EACH HOUR to assure full coverage during the night. The hourly slots from 8PM Friday to 8:30AM Saturday are meant for people who will stay the entire hour. Of course, anyone is welcome to come to Adoration for a shorter period - signup here is not necessary for that. Sign in / out sheets will be available the the church if you come in for a non-committed time.
God Bless and thank you!
