Experience the Real Presence of Jesus!

Fridays,  9 AM - 4 PM*

The Most Blessed Sacrament will be exposed upon the altar at Our Lady of Bethesda Retreat Center each Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. All are welcome to come spend some time in prayer with Jesus. 

Exposition will begin at 9:00 am. Mass will be celebrated at noon, then Adoration will continue after Mass until 4:00 pm. Benediction will start at 4:00 pm.

Help us make sure that Our Lord is never alone.

If you are willing to commit to an hour each week to adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, please consider signing up to do so. Many rich blessings are bestowed on those who regularly adore Jesus, truly present in the Blessed Sacrament.

You are invited to select a time you can commit to, for a full hour of Adoration*. We would like to have a total of 3-4 people committed to each hour. You may select more than one day or time, but please notify the Retreat Center if you are unable to fulfill this obligation.
