Parish Life

Eucharistic Adoration

Join us for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament every Thursday at Saint William Church, after the 8:15am Mass. Adoration begins at 9:00am and ends at 5:00pm. We pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy at 3:00pm in Polish ending with Divine Merci Chaplet and benediction in English at 4:45pm. We pray two very important intentions during this adoration: we pray for peace throughout the world, and for priestly and religious vocations to the service of God in the Church.

 

W każdy Czwartek w naszym kościele pod wezwaniem Świętego Williama odbywa się Adoracja Najświętszego Sakramentu. Rozpoczynamy ją Mszą św. o godzinie 8:15 rano  i trwa do godziny 5:00 wieczór. O godzinie 3:00 po południu odbywa się Nabożeństwo do Bożego Miłosierdzia w języku polskim. W ciągu całego dnia adoracji polecamy Panu Bogu szczególnie dwie bardzo ważne intencje: modlimy się o pokój na całym świecie oraz o powołania Kapłańskie i Zakonne do służby Bożej w Kościele.
