LEWISTON – Sr. Elizabeth Madden of the Servants of the Blessed Sacrament in Waterville will present a conference, “Focusing on the Eucharist in the Silence of Lent,” from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 5, at St. Joseph’s Church Hall. Refreshments will be served starting at 10:30 a.m.

All parishioners in the Lewiston/Auburn area who want to deepen their understanding and devotion to the Holy Eucharist are encouraged to attend.

The topic is especially pertinent as Pope John Paul II has dedicated October 2004 through October 2005 as “The Year of the Eucharist.”

He is encouraging all Catholics to increase their devotion to the Holy Eucharist, including participating in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

The Servants of the Blessed Sacrament is a contemplative non-cloistered Eucharistic community with spiritual ministries in the church. Madden has completed studies in theology, scripture and spirituality and is certified in Ignatian spirituality and spiritual direction.

She serves as vocation director for the U.S. Province of the Servants of the Blessed Sacrament. She also provides spiritual direction for the Perpetual Adoration Program established by the deanery of parishes of southern Maine as well as the weekly Wednesday Adoration Program at St. Joseph’s Church.
