Daily Rosary On weekdays (including Saturday), following the 9 a.m. Mass, parishioners - and anyone who wishes to join them - gather before the tabernacle in the beautiful Blessed Sacrament Chapel to pray and meditate upon the mysteries of the Rosary. If, in our busy world, you feel need of a time to meditate, praying the Rosary has long filled that need and continues to do so today.
Adoration and Benediction The Eucharist has been called the “source and summit of the Christian life.” We acknowledge this in a special way when we kneel in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament when it is prominently displayed. Saint Luke’s exposition and benediction of the Blessed Sacrament is held during a Holy Hour on the first Saturday of each month (except for July, August and September) at 8 a.m. in the chapel. “Our way of thinking is attuned to the Eucharist, and the Eucharist in turn confirms our way of thinking.” (Saint Irenaeus)
Way of the Cross All of us cannot go to Jerusalem to trace Jesus’ path on his fateful journey to the cross. But we can do this symbolically in one of Christendom’s most hallowed devotions, the Way of the Cross. We can recall the events of this painful journey by following the Way of the Cross before the stations in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel at any time we wish in private prayer. During Lent, when wooden crosses are hung in the church to represent the 14 stations, we follow the Savior’s steps, from the Praetorium to Golgotha and then the tomb, in communal services.
