One Hour of Adoration

Commit to ONE hour of adoration per week.

We currently have adoration during the following times:

Tuesday: 8:30am-10:00pm

Thursday: 8:30am-10:00pm

Friday during Advent & Lent: 9:30am - 10:00pm

A goal at St. Bernard's is to have perpetual adoration - meaning time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  If you would like to sign up for any hour of weekly adoration, please click on the link below.

one tenth of a work week

Serve 1/10 of a work week blessing the parish and community with your God-given spiritual gifts.


What are your charisms or spiritual gifts? Take the Spiritual Gifts inventory that can help pinpoint the best places to begin your discernment.  Your completed inventory will be sent to Fr. Vasek and may be shared with the staff.  It is our prayer that this useful tool will help you discover the gifts you have been given in order that you might experience the joy of finding and filling your unique place in the mission of Christ's body, the Church.  

"Whether extraordinary or simple and humble, charisms are graces of the Holy Spirit which directly or indirectly benefit the Church, ordered as they are to her building up, to the good of men, and to the needs of the world." CCC, 799
