Prayer Opportunities

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament

Eucharistic Adoration flows from the celebration of the Mass and offers us the opportunity to spend time in spiritual conversation with Christ; to feel his unlimited love for us, to contemplate his face; to be conformed to him; and to draw from his strength, consolation and support. As St. Paul says, “Beholding the glory of the Lord, we are being changed into his likeness, from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”

Adoration on Campus

Our Lady Seat of Wisdom Catholic Student Fellowship facilitates some opportunities for Eucharistic Adoration on Mondays and Thursdays from 9pm-11pm when the fall semester starts. Monday Adoration is solemn and Thursday Adoration has praise and worship music.

Please contact the Campus Ministry Office for additional Adoration times at (616) 632-2488 or see the Events Calendar on the Campus Ministry homepage.

Prayer

God invites us into a relationship with Him that is both personal and communal. He speaks to us through His Son, Jesus Christ, the Word-made-flesh. Prayer is our response to God who is already speaking or, better yet, revealing Himself to us. Therefore, prayer is not merely an exchange of words, but it engages the whole person in a relationship with God the Father, through the Son, and in the Holy Spirit.

>Basic Prayers

"Grant me, O Lord my God, a mind to know you, a heart to seek you, wisdom to find you, conduct pleasing to you, faithful perseverance in waiting for you, and a hope of finally embracing you," Saint Thomas Aquinas.
