"Adoration of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament has been a long-standing ministry of our parish, what better way to honor Him?" The renovation of the Adoration Chapel needs to reflect our deep love for the Lord and be our votive offering to Him. As we have completed our renovation of the sanctuary we can echo the beauty with renovating the Chapel.

A Jesuit priest once said: “The presence of Catholic art in the home doesn’t prove anything but it says a lot; the absence of Catholic art in the home doesn’t prove anything, but it says a lot.” That’s true of Catholic homes and it’s true of Catholic parishes. Yet beauty (or its absence) not only “says a lot”—it does a lot. Beautiful arts nourish the soul even as they prompt us to hunger for Heaven, where Beauty itself resides.
Let's make the Chapel say a lot about how we Worship Our King!
Many have been asking what our next renovation project might be. I understand that there is still much that needs to be done. After taking some time for
prayerful reflection I believe that our next effort needs to be the renovation of the Adoration Chapel. The adoration of the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament has been a long-standing ministry of our parish. What better way to honor Him?
It has been my desire to renovate the Adoration Chapel and now is the time to undertake this
effort. I trust that the Lord is pleased when we come into His presence to spend time with Him.
The ‘Adoration Chapel’ needs to reflect our deep love for the Lord and be our votive offering to Him.
My hope is that we undertake this renovation in a similar way as the sanctuary in the Church so that there is consistency and the two complement one another. The beauty of the sanctuary will echo the beauty of the Adoration Chapel.
In a practical way, this will require a new marble standing altar for the monstrance. There will also be some necessary electrical work to provide for extra lighting for the new altar. In addition, I envision perhaps new curtains, the need to refresh and clean the beautiful monstrance and new candlesticks. Lastly, I wish to address the better security of the adoration chapel.
It is hard to estimate the cost of the renovation of the Adoration Chapel but my hope is to raise about $80,000.00. I trust that we will use wisely any donations for this project and any extra funds will be dedicated for the continued improvements and maintenance of our Church.
I am pleased to inform you that $6,500.00 has already been donated to our ‘Adoration Chapel Renovation Fund’. I appeal to all of you to prayerfully consider a sacrificial gift to this effort knowing that the Lord will bless our generosity.
Please designate any gift to the ‘Adoration Chapel Renovation’ so that we may acknowledge your gift.
With God’s Blessings,
