The chapel inside the parish center at St. Theresa Church is almost always quiet, with a steady stream of people entering, kneeling or sitting quietly, then exiting after about an hour. It seems hard to believe that this silent vigil is part of a marathon effort involving about 400 volunteers. But it is. And the group has no plans to end it. At least, not any time soon.
“It’s called a perpetual Eucharistic adoration and, as far as I know, we are one of only two parishes in Fairfield County that are doing it,” said the Rev. Brian Gannon. “This weekend marks one year.”
