Eucharistic Adoration Chapel Marks 20th Anniversary

SHINNSTON—This month, the Blessed Margaret of Castello Eucharistic Adoration Chapel in Shinnston will celebrate its 20th anniversary Oct. 20. Established by St. Ann Parish in Shinnston, the chapel offers the Catholic faithful the opportunity to spend time with Christ. Following the 10 a.m. Mass, an outdoor Eucharistic procession with the Blessed Sacrament from the church to the front doors of the chapel will be held. The chapel is located behind the church. A luncheon will follow the procession. “Outside the chapel we will have song, incense and blessing with the Blessed Sacrament then placing the monstrance inside, taking its regular place for adoration,” said Father Gary Naegele, associate pastor of St. Ann’s. The chapel opened Oct. 24, 1999, as one of more than 1,000 perpetual adoration chapels in the U.S. and was dedicated to Blessed Margaret of Castello, patroness of the people with disabilities, the unwanted, and the unborn. The chapel is now open from 6 a.m. to midnight every day. For more information about the chapel, call the parish office at (304) 592-2733 or visit
