St. Joseph the Worker hosts the Lenten Eucharistic Mission

WEIRTON – During the week of March 19-24, St. Joseph the Worker Church, 229 California Ave., Weirton, will host a Lenten Eucharistic Mission.

Reverend William Casey CPM of the Fathers of Mercy will speak in local parishes during Sunday Masses and then present a Eucharistic mission for four nights March 21-24.

The theme of a “Eucharistic” Mission was chosen to promote Eucharistic adoration, a spokesperson explained. “Our local Catholic community is in the process of establishing Perpetual Adoration in the Communion of Saints Chapel of Adoration located in the Church of St. Joseph the Worker,” noted the spokesperson.

The chapel is open to anyone in Upper Ohio Valley who wishes to participate as a caretaker or visitor. Worship is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The week-long event will serve to recruit Guardians, people from various local parishes who commit to a specific hour of worship each week in the chapel. “Their role is to ensure that the Blessed Sacrament is never left alone. Through their generosity, the chapel can remain open for others to come and visit our Lord,” continues the spokesperson.

“We are now registering tutors for Saturday Adoration from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. When at least two tutors have signed up for each hour, the chapel will open for another 12-hour day of Adoration.

“Our goal is to establish Perpetual Adoration which would make Our Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament available in the chapel day and night, 24/7.

The four evenings of missionary talks will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. each evening, followed by confession from 8 to 9 p.m. Refreshments, childcare, a Eucharistic display and the opportunity to register as a tutor will be available in the church vestibule.
