*Adoration at St. Pius X begins August 24th: We are very blessed to offer Eucharistic Adoration at the SPX Chapel each Friday, between 9am and 3pm, with an occasional time change for all school Masses and special school events. This is an extension of the adoration of the Blessed Sacrament which occurs in every Mass: "Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb." Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament flows from the sacrifice of the Mass and serves to deepen our hunger for Communion with Christ and the rest of the Church. Guardians of the Blessed Sacrament sit with Jesus for one hour to Adore Him, meditate, read scriptures, pray, complete devotions, etc. This is a joint effort through Campus Ministry and the Mother’s Club. This is open to Pius students, parents, grandparents and alumnae. If you would like to either be a permanent Guardian (ex. The 1st Friday of each month, 9-10am) or a substitute Guardian (sign up when available), please contact Jessica Kuipers, firstname.lastname@example.org.
