Keeping the Faith
Eucharistic Adoration - 1st Friday Devotions
Jesus calls all parishioners to spend an hour with Him in adoration. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament begins after the 8:00 a.m. Mass until 5:30 pm on First Fridays. Rosary and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament begins at 5:30 p.m. Communion service follows Benediction at 6:00 p.m.
We are able to give honor and praise to Christ and develop a closer relationship with Jesus by spending an hour in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.

There are varying opportunities within a short distance from Springfield. The diocese plans and implements retreats throughout the year. St. Teresa Parish attempts to share this information as soon as it is available. If you have any questions regarding retreats, please check catholiccincinnati.org
