“When you look at the Crucifix, you understand how much Jesus loved you then. When you look at the Sacred Host you understand how much Jesus loves you now,”

- Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta


This ministry establishes and maintains adoration of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament on Fridays from 8:00 am. – 5:00 pm.  Adorers are asked to devote 1 hour per week before the Blessed Sacrament.  Adorers can pray, meditate, read Scripture, or simply sit in the Presence of Christ.


For information on Eucharistic adoration or to sign up for a weekly hour with our Lord, please contact Jen Syzdek


Centering PrayerKess Frey, 338-2894


The main purpose of this ministry is the spiritual enrichment of those who participate in it.  Centering Prayer is a simple method for accessing the gift of contemplation – which is not so much something we do as it is something God does in us with our willing consent and cooperation. This is a silent, receptive way of praying based on the principle of the divine indwelling present within us as “temples of the Holy Spirit.”


The heart of Centering Prayer involves consenting to God’s presence and action within us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  It is a way of deepening our relationship with God – which extends from our regular times of formal prayer into the details of daily life.  The regular practice of this prayer initiates a dynamic of inner purification, healing and transformation in the soul where we move from conversation with God into communion with Him beyond words, thoughts, feelings and images.


Holy Family’s Centering Prayer group generally meets twice a month on the first and third Saturdays in the Holy Family Center and at the Listening Post upstairs in the Transit Center at 6th and H Street.  For more information about this prayer-group ministry, contact Kess Frey also at
