Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is returning to the city of Boston for the first time in 40 years, at St. Clement Eucharistic Shrine in the Back Bay. The website is here:
This Saturday, August 15, on the Solemnity of the Assumption, Cardinal O’Malley will celebrate the 11am Mass at the Shrine and inaugurate perpetual adoration. A few from the community of cloistered nuns who last held perpetual adoration at the Shrine 40 years ago will attend. (The Shrine changed hands a few times before the Oblates of the Virgin Mary received it in the late 70’s.)
There has been a lot of local and national coverage, including Catholic.org, American Papist, CatholicTV, the front page of the Boston Globe, and on Cardinal O’Malley’s blog. There are also ads on two billboards in Boston (the picture at the top of this page), on a few places in the subway system (the one below), and in many parishes.
Anyone who is local, Catholic or not, please feel free to come by and adore. And if you’re not local, please pray for continued adoration at the Shrine!
