Encounter Christ in the Eucharist Together as a Family!
Friday, September 29, 6:00 – 7:00 PM in the church, sweet treats to follow (Ballantyne campus)
Adoration is simply to show our love for Jesus, to adore Him in the Eucharist, and to allow Him to love us. The purpose of Family Eucharistic Adoration is to welcome the entire family, including children of any age, to adore Christ’s presence in the Eucharist.
If you have never been to Eucharistic Adoration, don’t worry, we will teach you everything you need to know. Simply come and be led through the loving Adoration of Jesus.
Christ Renews His Parish, or CRHP as we call it. CRHP is a retreat that takes place at St. Matthew from Friday 6:00 pm and ends with the Saturday 5:30 pm Vigil mass.
CRHP is a wonderful way to deepen your love for Christ and meet the new friends the Lord wants you to meet on your spiritual path. It will also inspire you to serve Christ in new ways. Invite a friend to join you. It’s all good.
Please consider attending the next Men’s (October 27-28) or Women’s (November 10-11) CRHP.

No discussion of Eucharistic Miracles is complete without reference to Blessed Carlo Acutis, the “computer genius” (and possible future patron saint of the internet), who by age 14, had created an extensive database of Eucharistic Miracles, along with a website and a display of Eucharistic Miracles that would tour the world. Blessed Carlo Acutis was also the inspiration for Ray Grijalba’s movie.
