EXPLANATION STATION by St John Nepomucene Adult Faith Formation

Why do we pray for the Holy Souls in November?
It is no coincidence that this time comes right before Advent, a liturgical season that prepares believers for light to appear in the midst of darkness. Death is not only a part of eternity, but also of community. We pray for each of the dead, not just for our own loved ones.

The church consists of those alive on earth and also those alive to God in heaven and in purgatory, which is marked by the feasts of All Saints on November 1st and All Souls on November 2nd.  The prayers we offer are especially for those souls still in purgatory.

November is a great month to visit your favorite cemeteries for some beautiful moments of prayer, a great annual spiritual activity for the whole family.

Reverent Prayer Time – Eucharistic Adoration at St. John Nepomucene

Reverent Prayer Time – Eucharistic Adoration at St. John Nepomucene

What is Adoration?  Adoration is a quiet time spent in prayer before Jesus present in the Eucharist. It is a sign of devotion and worship of Jesus Christ, who is believed by Catholics to be present in body, soul, and divinity, under the appearance of the consecrated host. 

If you are interested in spending silent prayer time in front of the Blessed Sacrament at St. John Nepomucene, the church will be available the third Thursday of each month (as long as we have interest) for Eucharistic Adoration.

This will begin on Thursday, October 21st from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.

To sign up for a one-hour time slot, or request more information, please contact Tammy Spidle at 920-202-1631 or tammyspidle@gmail.com.
