EUCHARISTIC ADORATION CHAPEL

mOnstrance_9452

 

Your time in the Adoration Chapel is a wonderful way to escape the busy world we live in today. This is an opportunity to spend quiet time with Jesus and for prayer and silent reflection. This hour Jesus wants you to spend with Him is spent any way you want. You may bring your own Bible, prayer books, use the books in the chapel, pray the rosary, or just sit and relax and enjoy the sweet peace that comes from simply being in the Presence of God. You may feel that you can’t pray well. Don’t let this discourage you. The mere fact that you take time out at a specific time each week to spend an hour with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament pleases Him very much and is in itself a prayer of great faith.


The Chapel is open
Monday 12:00 noon – Midnight

Tuesday – Sunday 6:00 am – Midnight

 

Below are the times we need to fill to fill to keep someone with the Blessed Sacrament until Midnight                                                             

       The following hours need to be filled:   

Sunday               9-10am, 11am-noon, 1-2pm  All hours from 5pm-midnight

Monday              4-5pm, 6-7pm, 10-11pm, 11pm-midnight

Wednesday        6-7am, 3-4pm, 7-8pm, 10-11pm, 11pm-midnight

Thursday            12-1pm, 4-5pm, 5-6pm, 11pm-midnight

Friday                 3-4pm, 4-5pm, 6-7pm, 10-11pm

Please try to give one hour a week so that we can fill the hours that Jesus is alone.  Maybe even pair up with someone and do thirty minutes each. We are also always in need of substitutes.

Mrs. Georgette Falcone handles the scheduling of hours so please giver her a call at 843-665-2716 , she will be happy to explain any questions you may have. Our goal right now is to fill the hours just until Midnight, but wouldn’t it be wonderful to be a real Perpetual Adoration Chapel again, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

Sacrament of Baptism

If you are planning to have your child(ren) baptized at St. Anthony please read the following.

Parents are asked to be or to become registered parishioners in advance of the baptism. If you belong to another parish and are requesting to have your child baptized at St. Anthony for family reasons, we must have a letter of permission from your parish to celebrate the baptism. Parents must attend one preparation class in advance. This one-hour class  is  held once a month. Please contact the Church Office for class information and to make arrangements for your child’s baptism.

Traditional Latin Mass

The traditional Latin Mass (“Extraordinary Form”) will be offered each Saturday of the year at 9am, unless otherwise announced. The format will be the “Low Mass” in “Dialogue” (1962- congregation may join in some responses, in the “Gloria”, etc.; readings will be done out loud in Latin, and repeated in English). This Mass is known for it’s reverent silences, and what many see as a more effective presentation of the Lord Jesus’ Sacrifice for our sakes.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry pairs a trained lay person with someone who is dealing with a life crisis or transition – grief, divorce, hospitalization, job loss, terminal illness, to name a few. Stephen Ministers, who have  receive 50 hours of training, meet with a care receiver once a week for about an hour. They are trained to care, to listen, to stand by a person and minister to his or her spiritual needs as God works through this relationship to bring hope and healing to the care receiver. Stephen Ministry care is confidential care.

This ministry gives Fr. Morey a way to be sure people get the attention they need for as long as they need it. Stephen Ministry relationships can be as short as a few months or as long as several years. As a community of faith, we at St. Anthony Parish are committed to follow Jesus and reach out in service to our fellow human beings with love, respect, and support.

Confidential Care Request cards and informational brochures are at the entrances to the church.
