Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on Wednesdays
God is the friend of silence. We need to find God and He cannot be found in noise and restlessness. See how nature, the trees, the flowers, the grasses grow in perfect silence . . . see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence. The more we receive in silent prayer, the more we can give in our active life.” – Saint Teresa of Calcutta Come to Adoration on Wednesdays from 7:30 – 5pm. Call the office at 808-326-7771 for more information.
