St. Francis de Sales

Sign up for an open slot today: Eucharistic Adoration Sign Up


Anytime is a great time to sign up to adore our Lord, but special prayers are requested for our parish, our community and the world as we navigate our “new normal.” Read the letter below for more info. 


Dear Adorers,


As you may have already heard, we will be resuming Adoration on June 1, 2020, praise God!  We are so fortunate at St. Francis de Sales to be able to adore our Lord in the Eucharist, and I know we all have missed being able to do so. You may have already been contacted by your hourly coordinators, and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact them or myself.


In the interest of keeping every one of you safe, there are a number of things I wanted to bring to your attention.


  1. If you are unable to fulfill your hourly commitment at this time, please let your hourly coordinator know.
  2. If you are feeling ill, please arrange for a sub to take on your hour. Should you need an updated list, they can be found in the Adoration Chapel.
  3. Use your own pen to sign in, or use a disinfectant wipe to clean the available pen before and after you use it.
  4. If you use one of the books from the library, or a rosary, use a wipe to cleanse it before and after using it.
  5. Please maintain six feet of social distance between you and any other adorer.
  6. When your hour is up, please take a moment to wipe down the surfaces where you were sitting or kneeling.
  7. For those exposing and reposing, please wipe off any touch points on the monstrance, the pyx, and the tabernacle key, as well as the door handles and light switches.


As you can imagine, this will require quite a bit of disinfectant products.  I do have some, but not enough.  For us to make Adoration possible, we will need as many of you as possible to donate wipes and hand sanitizer.  I am happy to pick these items up from you, or they can be dropped off at the Adoration Chapel.  A box will be available for you to place your donated items in.  Thank you in advance for your willingness to do your part to help keep everyone safe!


Finally, I would like to ask each of you to go to our Lord in prayer to thank him that we are able to get back to Mass as a community as well as Adoration.  Once again, we are so fortunate to be able to.
