In the tranquil setting of Saint Vincent de Paul Church, a sacred practice unfolds each Monday in Advent. From 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth gather for a Holy Hour of Adoration, a serene observance rooted in the poignant query from Matthew 26:40, “Could you not watch one hour with Me?”
This hour, set before the Blessed Sacrament, is a time of deep reflection and spiritual communion. It offers a space for quiet contemplation and renewal of faith. In the stillness, the Sisters and all who join engage in a silent, heartfelt dialogue with the Divine. As Advent symbolizes expectant waiting and preparation for the Nativity, this Holy Hour becomes a journey of the heart, preparing the soul for the profound mysteries of faith.
Each Monday, the church transforms into a haven of peace, its candles casting a soft glow, illuminating faces etched with tranquility. The Holy Hour of Adoration at Saint Vincent de Paul Church thus stands as a weekly beacon of hope and faith, a reminder of Advent’s promise and the enduring presence of the Divine.
