St. Peregrine was miraculously healed of cancer after praying all night before an image of the crucified Christ. He is known throughout the world as the patron saint of cancer patients. There is a place for you, a place of comfort, peace, and hope. Healing can come in many ways. Join us as we pray to gather strength to continue the fight, to give thanks for being healed, and to honor the memory of those who are now in the arms of Jesus.

Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Friday, September 1

Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is held at St. Francis de Sales every First Friday immediately following the 8:30 a.m. Mass, and continuing until 4 p.m. Eucharistic Adoration honors the special presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist. Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament is a profession of faith in the real bodily presence of Jesus. One of the best ways to look at prayer before the Blessed Sacrament is to see it as an extension of Holy Communion. Our souls are fed and our minds and wills are strengthened and given light, that we may go about the tasks of our daily lives. Please come and spend some time in prayer with the Lord. For more information, please call Denise Alianello at (847) 726-1307 or Lillian Shutty at (847) 682-4555.
