Following the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass this morning, the Most Blessed Sacrament was exposed over the high altar for the adoration of the faithful. The special intention of today’s adoration is Vocations to the Priesthood and Consecrated Life. The Litany of the Sacred Heart and Benediction will take place at 3:00pm.
Below is a photo of the original statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (from 1899), fully restored by Conrad Schmitt Studios in June, 2007. This statue was rededicated on June 17, 2007-the 100th anniversary of the consecration of St. Mary’s Church by the Right Revered Thomas O’Gorman, Second Bishop of Sioux Falls.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
