Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. In the Chapel of the Good Shepherd, our Eucharistic Lord is shown in a special vessel called a Monstrance. The Eucharist is exposed in this vessel, so the faithful can come to pray before Him, to adore Him, and to worship Him continuously throughout the day and night. Jesus showed us His great love by dying on the Cross for us. He paid the ultimate price for our sins, and won for us eternal life. His love is without limit, and he offers Himself to us in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. Can we offer our love back to Him? Can we come and spend just one hour of prayer, adoration, and worship in return? Located next to St. Mary’s Parish Center
For the Christian, death is not an end, but a beginning. In death, the faithful follower truly lives with our Lord in eternal and blessed union. This is what we long for: heaven. These following pages might seem to be morbid or dark, but for a Christian they are pages of hope and expectation. Remember man that you are dust and to dust you shall return. Death is a reality of life, and everyone should be ready. A simple way to prepare for your own death and to assist your family and friends, who will be left behind, is to pre-plan your funeral. At the time of mourning it can be a great comfort to your family and friends to know that the readings, songs and other arrangements that are made for the celebration of Holy Mass and Christian Burial were specifically chosen by you. Remember, it is the grace of being a baptized Christian that upon death the Sacred Rite of Christian Burial should be celebrated. This is the desire of the Church. Please read through, pray about, and fill out the form below. It is a wonderful way to keep our eyes fixed on heaven.
Ministry to the sick and shut-ins is an important part of the mission of the Church. If you are interested in being part of this ministry, either by taking Holy Communion to our brothers and sisters who are unable to attend Mass, or by simply visiting and praying with them, please contact Deacon Larry French at 812-525-6568

Purpose of New Program
The Archdiocese of Indianapolis has chosen the “Safe and Sacred” program for several reasons. It provides easier access to child protection training for clergy, employees, and volunteers. It allows us to broaden the focus of the training to increase awareness of all forms of child abuse. Safe and Sacred includes an assessment that must be taken and passed to ensure that training content is learned and can be applied. We believe these are important new features for this program.
Who is Required to Sign Up for this Program?
Teachers, staff, and all volunteers who minister to or work with minor children must meet all the requirements of this program. If you are 18 years of age or older and you volunteer with minors, you must comply with all the requirements.
