The Mass, the celebration of the Eucharist, is the heart of our worship as Catholics. At the Last Supper, Jesus commanded us, “Do this in memory of me.” So from that time on, Catholics have celebrated the Eucharist just as the ancient Scriptures record: through the reading of God’s Word in Scripture and by our sharing in his Body and Blood, the very sacrifice of Christ.

Begin New Member Welcome Sessions:

Eucharistic Adoration Chapel
Something changes when we commit to giving God a fixed time that belongs to Him each week. Rather than fitting God into our busy lives, we fit other things around the One who is the most important. When we do this, there is a greater power in our prayer, it’s easier to hear God, and we let Him do more of what He wants in our life.
The chapel is open daily from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm for all visitors.
Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in the monstrance is available to 9:00 am Wednesday through 8:00 am Saturday.
We want parishioners and visitors to be able to spend time with Jesus and pray as often as they would like, as the need arises, and at hours that work with their schedules.
After-hours access to the Chapel is available from 8:00 pm – 7:00 am.
To balance ease of after-hours access and the need for security, OLPH is using an electronic system called VIZpin that turns your cell phone into the key needed to gain entry after-hours.
Festival of Praise–also lovingly referred to as FOP by regular attendees–is a powerful evening of prayer, praise, and worship before the Lord in the Eucharist.
What is it that draws so many to OLPH’s monthly Festival of Praise?
Could it be the prayerful worship through contemporary music which gives the chance to open our hearts and help us put the busyness of the day aside?
Perhaps it is the reflection on God’s Word, which provides us with direction for meditation?
Or maybe it’s the opportunity for individuals to pray with dedicated prayer teams. Consider joining us in the OLPH Church for this powerful evening of Praise, Prayer, and Worship before the Blessed Sacrament.
Time and Location:
Typically FOP falls on the first Friday of each month and begins at 7:30 pm and concludes at 9 pm. Questions? Contact the Parish Office at 410-747-4334, or follow OLPH’s Events on Facebook.
