The only 24/7 Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration (PEA) Chapel of the Holy Family Catholic Community serving Glendale and the surrounding areas within a mile radius celebrated its milestone 2nd Anniversary last Sunday, June 6. In great evidence was the ever-growing affection and commitment not just by the local parishioners but from the faithful all around the neighboring parishes—as well as daily—as seen in the increasing numbers and devotion of the faithful to Adoration attendance.
Open air, day-long festivities marking the 2nd year of the Monsignor Arthur J. Lirette PEA Chapel started with early morning mass at 6:30 and lasted all the way to the final afternoon mass at 5:30 pm. Parishioners were treated to several tables of food and beverages under colorful lawn umbrellas. The day was a very fitting anniversary observance of the only Adoration Chapel serving a considerable sprawl of parishes 24/7 such as the Church of Incarnation on Brand Blvd.; St. Dominic’s Church and St. Bernard, both in Eagle Rock; Holy Trinity Church in Atwater; St. Bede, the Venerable in La Canada; St. James the Less in La Crescenta; Holy Redeemer in Montrose, and Our Lady of Lourdes, Tujunga, to name a few.

The spiritual merits and graces bestowed all around by the Holy Family PEA Chapel cannot be overestimated! In its short years of existence, the Legion of 1,000 Men Adorers reaching out for the conversion of the menfolk in the community as all potential and heads of household has been successfully launched by parishioners along with plans for similar apostolates such as “Women of the Blessed Sacrament” and “Adoration for Children.”
Certainly, the faithful near and far and all around looks forward to the “perpetual” existence of the PEA Chapel, thanks to the indefatigable efforts of Chapel Coordinator, Remy Bobis; the parish clergy (Fathers Jim, Martin, Rafael, Marcial & Rene); committed Adorers; as well as, all supporters of this notable effort that keeps Jesus’ great saving work going for all!
