OLA – Holy Hour of Eucharist Adoration 

Holy Hour is the Roman Catholic devotional tradition of spending an hour in Eucharistic adoration in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. A plenary indulgence is granted for this practice.

The OLA Holy Hour of Adoration takes place every Tuesday evening from 7:00 pm until 8:00 pm, in the Church.


Remember a loved one in need of prayers or a departed member of your family with an OLA Mass Intention.

The donation cost is $15 per Mass Intention.

Our Giving Tree will go up on Saturday, November 23, 2019 & will be collecting warm winter clothing for the OLA Families & CCD Families of St. Patrick Parish in Norristown.

Gifts include:
Clothing for winter such as: coats, hoodies, sweatpants, leggings, sweaters, polar fleece: all sizes from infant thru children to adults. Hats, gloves & socks are welcome extras. We also collect Men’s work boots, if you could include your receipt (boots only) tucked inside.

Please return all gifts by Sunday, December 15th!
Please remove the price tags.  Please DO NOT wrap the gifts. This makes the process of displaying the gifts for the families to come & “shop” for one another much easier.

Gift Cards to stores such as Target, Giant, Aldi, Bottom Dollar, CVS, & Rite Aid are all welcome & appreciated. Please write the amount on the card or envelope it is placed in. It helps those who distribute to know what they are distributing.

Thank you for your time & effort to help these families. Every year, when we deliver your donations, they are overwhelmed with your generosity, as are we!
