Cru

An internationally renowned organization, Cru is passionate about connecting people to Jesus Christ.  

 

Cru meets Thursdays 8 p.m. - 9 p.m. in the Immaculate Conception Chapel to praise and worship God.

Cru’s Purpose is helping to fulfill the Great Commission in the power of the Holy Spirit by winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, building them in their faith and sending them to win and build others; and helping the Body of Christ do evangelism and discipleship.


 

Eucharistic Adoration

Eucharistic Adoration is the opportunity to pray to Jesus truly present in the Eucharist.

At the Last Supper, Jesus instituted the Eucharist and said "this is my body given up for you." Jesus is present with us as we worship before Him in the Eucharist.

"Looking into a sunset, the face takes on a golden glow. Looking at the Eucharistic Lord for an hour transforms the heart in a mysterious way as the face of Moses was transformed after his companionship with God on the mountain." - Archbishop Fulton Sheen

Eucharistic Adoration takes place in the Immaculate Conception Chapel Monday-Friday from 8:30 am-9:30 am.


Also, at Praise and Worship on Tuesday evenings at 8:30 pm in the Immaculate Conception Chapel.
