Procession; Adoration at Altar of Repose until Midnight at Assumption Grotto tonight

After the Mass of the Lord's Supper, there is a Eucharistic Procession to the Altar of Repose.  The way is paved with rose petals by children.  The parish church falls silent as people come and go through midnight, spending time before the tabernacle holding Our Lord at the side altar.  Won't you watch one hour with Him?

See the full Holy Week schedule here.  There is secured parking at all liturgical events.

See also the Facebook page for Assumption Grotto and the event created for Holy Week. Consider joining us.

Below, from last year, Fr. Perrone, Fr. John, and Fr. Logan pause for a brief period in adoration as silence stills the filled church.

Altar boys, likewise, look upon the Our Lord in the tabernacle, with only a little light cutting through the darkness in the church.  

Many remain in the wing near the Altar of Repose, and more are still sitting in the main body of the church gazing towards the Tabernacle holding Jesus.  

Last year, a little later in the evening, the Missionaries of Charity made their way from the other side of Detroit to spend time at the Altar of Repose.
