How does Perpetual Adoration work at OLPH?

When the Chapel opened in April 2016, we hoped to have enough committed Adorers to begin Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. To make sure that all time slots are filled, we will begin taking sign-ups for Wednesday-Saturday, and then once those hours are filled, we will open up Monday-Tuesday, and then Saturday-Sunday.
