West Bend, WI – There will be a blessing for the Adoration Chapel at St. Frances Cabrini on Sunday, February 26 at 12:30 p.m.  
Gather in the Church with Rev. Nathan, Rev. Harmon, Rev. Strand, Rev. Howard, Deacon Mark, and the adoration committee for this important celebration.
Reverend Nathan Reesman recently guided a tour of the new Adoration Chapel at St. Frances Cabrini Church in West Bend, Wi.

Praised be Jesus Christ! The new adoration chapel for West Bend is open.

We first talked of relocating Mary Queen of Angels Adoration Chapel from its longtime location at Holy Angels Parish back in August of 2021.

We began demolition work on October 4 all the existing Saint Frances Cabrini sacristies to accommodate a new chapel. We conducted a very successful hours signup drive for adorers in January and February at our area parishes. We have been praying and waiting to use the new space for many months.

I am so happy we have finally arrived at the opening and with a roster of regular
adorers that will allow the space to be used continually from Sunday evening through Saturday morning.

All that said, the chapel is a lovely place to pray. I am amazed at the transformation that has taken place in that sector of the main church building in the past nine months. I want to thank the many volunteers who helped so much in the physical labor of this process.

I want to thank the Adoration Chapel committee for its leadership and shepherding of this relocation, especially for the crucial work of getting the adoration time slots
filled.

I want to thank Father Howard at Holy Angels for his great support, along with our other area pastors. I want to thank everyone who donated much needed funds toward this project. To date we raised a very impressive $108,000 in donations for the work.

I want to thank all the vendors and contractors, most especially Russ our campus maintenance director who has devoted months of working hours to this project. Thank you!

Some practical things to note on a website for the adoration chapel with a lot of helpful and important information at www.wbadoration.org 

 

The main entry to the chapel is adjoined to the Cabrini narthex doors and is unlocked from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.

For the remainder of the hours each day a code is needed to access the chapel. All registered adorers have the code, and all others should contact the parish office to ask for it. There are no steps in the entrances, there is a bathroom for use at all hours of the day and night, and there is a landline phone for emergencies.

Adorers may park in the parking spaces nearest to the narthex doors, regardless of a handicap tag status on your vehicle.  

There is seating for 24 people in the chapel.

Please know everyone is welcome to stop by the chapel to adore our Lord. Sign up is not required.

Come for a short visit or stay for an hour.    Fr. Nathan Reesman  

He is waiting for you!
