This week we organized the Adoration Chapel with social distance seating and kneelers. We have a new program that will help us schedule adorers for the chapel and allow adorers to request substitutes. Our hope is that a new system will not only help us get the chapel open again, but help us successfully run the chapel into the future. This week we will be sending communication to those that had previously scheduled Adoration hours in the chapel. If you now know that you would like to resume your previous adoration hour, please communicate with Rhonda Parker in the Parish Office or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Prior to opening the chapel, we are going to build the list of those assigned to particular hours. We will use the same key fob for entrance to the chapel, but the access will only be turned on for those that register with the Parish Office. I want to slowly give access to the Chapel for safety reasons. We have 8 seats in the Chapel placed at 4 different seating locations. This will allow couples to sit next to each other. The Chapel will have a maximum occupancy of 8 persons, if each of the 4 chair locations are occupied by couples or members of the same household. For scheduling purposes, we will attempt to register one person or one couple for each hour of the seven day week. Thank you for your patience in our efforts to reopen the Chapel and your desire to Adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Eucharistic Adoration is one of the best ways for us to grow in communion with God.
School continues to go well. We reopened school on Wednesday, January 6. That day is one I will remember for a long time. Many of the kids were walking around the building saying it was the “best day ever.” While..
