Within the boundaries of St. Patrick's Parish, there is a community of contemplative sisters who serve a Chapel of Perpetual Adoration. It is located at 4105 Ocean Drive next door to the bishop's residence. Mass is every morning at 7:00 a.m. and the chapel is open from 5:45 a.m. until 5:45 p.m. seven days a week. On Wednesdays and Fridays, volunteers from St. Patrick's volunteer for an hour of adoration from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. so that the sisters may take care of other responsibilities within the convent.  These volunteers for adoration are divided into two groups.

Honor Guards - those who commit to take a specific hour every week on Wednesday or Friday.  Call Elizabeth Morga at (361) 993-3622 for more information.

Auxiliaries - those who commit to come at their convenience for an hour during the week to join their prayers with those of the sister who is in adoration.  Call Diana La Rue at (361) 749-1520 at home or cell (361) 813-6683 for more information.


On the first Sunday of the month, St. Patrick's has Eucharistic Adoration from 1:15 p.m., following the 12:15 p.m. Mass until 5:40 p.m. when adoration concludes with Benediction.  The Lay Carmelites do adoration from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.  Family adoration is from 4:00 to 5:40 where children are welcome.
