St. Benedict's Poor Box

Thank you to all who support the poor box!  100 percent of current donations to the poor box are given to a local charity, Ripley County Backpacks for Friday Program, which works in cooperation with the SEMO Food Bank and local schools to send home each weekend a backpack filled with non-perishable snacks and other foods for students in need and their families.  A donation of $175 feeds a family of four during an entire school year.  Even a few dollars could make a difference in the life of a hungry child!  Since 2019, we have sponsored 4 families!  Thank you!!


Eucharistic Adoration: 

First Fridays: 9:30am-5:00pm

Last Thursdays: 6:00-7:00 PM

Everyone is encouraged to come and spend quiet time with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament during Eucharistic Adoration.  Even if you aren't able to stay for a full hour, please consider time in prayer with the Blessed Sacrament, even if it's only a few moments. Eucharistic Devotion and The Real Presence of Jesus in the Sacrament of the Eucharist (USCCB links)
