The first Friday of each month we celebrate Mass in the East Pembroke Church at 10AM. You are then invited to stay for Adoration and Benediction from 10:30AM -11:30PM. You are invited to stay for a while or the hour to spend time with our Lord. Confessions are also offered during this time.

The next First Friday is September 3rd.

Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ, who is believed by Catholics to be present Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, under the appearance of the consecrated host, in the form of hosts, that is, consecrated altar bread. As a devotion, Eucharistic adoration, prayer, and meditation are more than merely looking at the Blessed Host, but are  to be a continuation of what was celebrated in the Eucharist. From a theological perspective, the adoration is a form of latria, based on the tenet of the real presence of Christ in the Blessed Host. The exposition and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament an important practice which “stimulates the faithful to an awareness of the marvelous presence of Christ and is an invitation to spiritual communion with Him.”
