Eucharistic Adoration - Thursdays
Each Thursday from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, Saint Pascal hosts the place for quiet reflection - Eucharistic Adoration in Church. The purpose of Eucharistic Adoration is to give every Catholic an opportunity to spend time with our Eucharistic Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament. Everyone is welcome and invited to spend some time on Thursdays for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour or more if so desired. It calms one’s soul, brings peace to one’s heart and deepens one’s relationship with the Lord. Making time with Jesus may be the gift you can give yourself.
ParishSoft - Connecting People and the Church
Our parish families now have an opportunity to update personal information on our database ParishSoft. Along with this opportunity, families will also be able to view their contributions, print tax letters (when they become available, saving the parish postage during tax season!). Families may choose to upload pictures too. All additions or changes are reviewed and approved by parish staff members.
Along with the above features, ministers (Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion, Altar Servers and Ushers) can communicate the dates they are available to serve, when they will be out of town, and view their schedule or their children’s schedules.
