ost Blessed Sacrament Parish is a welcoming community which comes together to implement Christ’s mission. We join to teach,
to evangelize, to accept and to encourage ourselves and others in ongoing spiritual growth. Serving and supporting those within
and beyond our parish remains a major focus as we recognize that each of us is called to be a witness to God’s love in our world.

“I am the good shepherd...and I lay down my life for the
sheep…and they will heed my voice.” -John 10:14-16
When you pray, do you only ask Jesus for things that
you want? Do you ever ask Jesus what He wants you
to do? How do you listen for the response? The answer is usually in “quiet whispers”. Take time in silent, daily prayer to hear His answer.
First Holy Communion will

Eucharistic Adoration at MBS
We invite you to ‘watch one hour’ during Saturday Adoration.
The Church of the Most
Blessed Sacrament has Adoration every Saturday from 9:30 am until 4:30 pm. Jesus is present …. Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity….and we have a
chance, like Venerable Fulton Sheen, to fulfill Our Lord’s
request.
Although we invite you to drop in whenever you can
and for as long as you are able, we really need adorers to
sign up and commit to a specific hour each Saturday. If
you can commit to a specific hour or even to a specific 30
minutes, please call Rose Stone at 201-677-0761.

Spring Prayer
Dear God: Spring is a metaphor for change.
Some changes we eagerly await, and some
we abhor. Some changes we plan and others
arrive uninvited. To all these changes we ask the gift of
Your perspective beckoning us to expectation, hope, and
rebirth. May the sunlight and the rain be reminders that
You are at work renewing the earth. As a God of renewal,
You are ever at work in our lives, too. Open our eyes and
lives to the needed changes in our lives this Spring.
Awaken us to new life and perspective, for we pray in
Jesus' name.
Amen.
