The 60-year-old St. Pius V Catholic Church located in Buena Park is the place to go after a long day of work and fighting traffic on the way home. 

Adoration hours are from noon to 8 p.m. At any given time, approximately a dozen adorers can be seen kneeling and praying solemnly in front of the Blessed Sacrament. The busiest time is from 4 to 7 p.m. when people, coming from work, hurry in to find solace in front of the Blessed Eucharist. 

Parishioners often write their name in the visitor’s log before they start to say their rosaries or novenas to their patron saints. Some of those who attend kneel close to the tabernacle, asking the Lord to intercede on their behalf, and there are times when tears can be seen on their cheeks as they pray for a departed loved one. 

St. Pius V began adoration decades ago. However, two years ago Fr. Paw decided to change the 24-hour monthly adoration to a daily schedule, Monday through Friday from noon to 8 p.m. With the help of Deacon Rick Torres and his wife Sherri, the extended hours have generated a lot of attention and attendance.

  1. Seems like a small Church. A rough count in the photo shows less than two hundred seats. Maybe there are more seats behind the camera.
