Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Can you give one hour a week to the Lord?

12-Hour Adoration begins at 9am on Thursdays and ends at 9pm.

We would like to have at least 2 people in each time slot and several only have one.

Please call Angela in the Parish Office (472-1482) if you can commit to 1 hour of prayer at Adoration each week. Or, feel free to call and ask about a time that works well in your schedule.


St. Bernard Events:

The Divine Mercy Chaplet is prayed during Adoration every Thursday at 3 pm.

Prayer makes a difference!

Redfield Area Right to Life extends a special invitation to all to join. Call Shirley Holt.

Sioux Falls Diocese Events:

+Resources on Medical Decisions and End-of-Life Care: Visit the Office of Marriage, Family & Respect Life at for a variety of resources, including a diocesan booklet, a sample Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, a planning guide, prayers, links, articles, and more. Perhaps a loved one is in the hospital after a tragic injury or a parent is in a nursing home with a terminal illness. Suffering and death affects us all. Preparing spiritually and practically for an unexpected illness or our end-of-life care can alleviate much anxiety – for ourselves and the ones we love.

Directed by Dr. Marcie Moran and guests. Please call 988-3775 or 1-800-700-7867 or send an e-mail to for more information or to register. Registrations limited.

+Your car is running because you changed the oil. Why not afford the same loving care to your marriage?

On WWME Weekends, sharing is ALWAYS voluntary, and married couples and priests give talks about their real-life experiences (i.e., you don’t have to do lots of reading.) Register today for the weekend. Please visit or call John/Dawn Elsinger at 362-0924.
