Holy Eucharistic Adoration Revitalization Team / HEART:

The purpose of HEART is twofold. The team is dedicated to educating everyone on the wonderful benefits of the practice of Adoration in our lives.  The other aspect is to fulfill the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops guidelines on Holy Communion and Worship of the Eucharist outside of Mass. Please visit the Saint Agnes Eucharistic Adoration page for testimonies, videos, and how-to information for developing your personal adoration devotion.

The practice of having two or more adorers present each hour requires a permanent schedule of “anchors,” the people committed to being present that hour each week.  This allows for everyone else to participate during the entire day.  HEART welcomes everyone with an interest in deepening their relationship with Jesus to become part of the team whether or not they become an “anchor,” committed to a specific hour of adoration each week.

Our current schedule begins with Adoration starting after the 7:30 am Mass on Thursdays.  Adoration continues through the day, concluding at 7 pm with Benediction.  There is a team that leads the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and a Rosary at 3 pm.  Deacon Bill Wilson leads a Holy Hour from 6-7 pm and the concluding Benediction.
