Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament takes place every Thursday in the Church after 9.30am Mass to 6pm.  This is a great form of quiet reflective prayer.  New adorers are always welcome in maintaining the flow of prayer.  This is especially the case between the times of 1pm and 4pm.  If you could commit to an hour perhaps you would give consideration to these times especially.
