March 1-3, 2017

Please join with all members of Our Lady of the Wayside for a very special parish-wide Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. From the close of the 7:30 p.m. Mass on Ash Wednesday, March 1 through the conclusion of the 7:30 p.m. Stations of the Cross on Friday, March 3, our parish will show our unified commitment to the glory of the Sacrament through this Adoration. Please come and spend one hour, or more, at the Adoration, and please consider attending often throughout the event. What a splendid way to begin the 2017 Lenten season! The Lenten season is a very special time for self-reflection and reconnection. Get it off to a great start by participating in the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.
In order to maintain a constant and prayerful attendance during the Adoration, we ask that you sign up for the time or times you can commit to attend. You may sign up by calling the Parish Center at 847 253 5353 or visit the event page on the Sign Up Genius website to sign up for the times you will join us in prayer:

"Couldn't you keep watch with me for just one hour?"
