LINCOLN (SNR) – Father Victor Warkulwiz of the Missionary Priests of the Blessed Sacrament will speak at three Lincoln parishes in the coming months, on the benefits of perpetual Adoration.
Father Warkulwiz resides in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and has taken his message of perpetual Adoration to several hundred parishes in 47 states, Canada, and elsewhere, to establish or maintain perpetual Adoration in those parishes.
“Please remember that perpetual Adoration in a parish is not just for a day, a week, a month, or a year,” Father Warkulwiz said. “Rather it is for always. It is not temporary, but ongoing, lasting, permanent.
He added a quote from St. John Paul II: “Our essential commitment in life is to grow spiritually in the climate of the Holy Eucharist.”
The Cathedral and St. Peter parishes have longstanding perpetual Adoration programs underway, although new adorers are always welcome to join.
North American Martyrs Parish in Lincoln began a program of Adoration in Lent of last year. Parish secretary Julie Crawford reported great participation from that parish as well, but said more people are always welcome to join, especially in filling hours from midnight to 5 a.m.
Diann Kroos, a parishioner who coordinates Martyrs’ adorers, said, “My prayer is that Father Warkulwiz will help each of our parishioners get a deeper, more profound understanding of the beauty, peace and graces that flow when spending an Holy Hour with Jesus in Adoration.”
She reflected on her own experience as an adorer and how much it has helped her grow in faith.
“Now all I want is more of Him in my life!” she said.
Brother David Mary of the Knights of the Holy Eucharist assisted the parishes with Father Warkulwiz’s visits.
