Since the beginning of 2010 SES has held Eucharistic Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the First Friday of each month,  in the Chapel. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament begins at the conclusion of the 8:30 AM morning Mass, and concludes at 6:00 PM with Benediction. Everyone in SES is invited to attend but it is very helpful if parishioners commit to a specific time slot for Adoration. This is necessary because the Blessed Sacrament can never be left unattended. Parishioners willing to make this one hour commitment for each First Friday should contact the coordinators so they can be assigned to a convenient time slot.

“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit? ...Therefore, honor God with your body.” (1Cor. 6:15-20).

During February, we begin our Lenten journey and can use this time to reflect upon our physical activity. Maybe instead of giving up something this year, add something instead. People who regularly exercise live longer and feel better. Physical activity reduces weight, the incidence of cancer, and heart disease. Walking 2 miles a few times a week significantly lowers the risk of death in senior citizens. If you are not exercising, start slowly and share your plan with others. Doing so, increases will power and having the support of others is good for you and good for them. So, if you must give up something for Lent this year, give up the couch!
