Adoration Volunteers Needed

We are in need of several people who could fill the 11am time slot on Thursdays in the Adoration Chapel.  This could be for 30 minutes or the whole hour. Please see if you can take a break during this time to be with Jesus in a time of quiet reflection and prayer.  The rewards are humbling and awesome at the same time.  Please call Mary Plude if you can fill this ministry at 547-6652, ext 13.
