Perpetual Adoration Chapel
What if our parish could offer a safe, accessible, beautiful space where our Lord Jesus Christ could be adored and worshiped in the Blessed Sacrament 24 hours a day, seven days a week?
Imagine the blessings that would flow from such a continuous experience of our Lord's presence in our Southern Maryland community...
Imagine the vocations that would spring from such a source...
Imagine the amazing things our Risen Lord could accomplish in a place where such unceasing praise and prayer could be offered to him...
Now ask yourself: Is there any way I could contribute to making this splendid dream a reality?
ST. MARY'S PERPETUAL ADORATION CHAPEL
"Come, let us adore him"
St. Mary's Perpetual Adoration Chapel will be located between the Parish Rectory and the Pastor's Residence, as shown in the site plan below. This space will be well-lit and easily accessible to parking, making it safe and convenient to visit even at night. The exterior doors will require a code for entry during nighttime hours, offering additional security.
The interior of the chapel will be about 1100 square feet, providing space and seating for approximately forty adorers. The exterior is modeled on traditional Southern Maryland church architecture and will harmonize well with the appearance of St. John's church.
The remaining cost to fund this project is $300,000. We hope to raise this amount and begin construction by Spring 2019, but we need the help of generous donors to make it happen. We humbly ask that you prayerfully consider donating to help fund the construction and maintenance of this sacred space.
