What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Eucharistic adoration is a complete liturgical service for the adoration of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. Normally the consecrated host is kept in a tabernacle. During Eucharistic Adoration it is placed on the altar in a monstrance to be venerated; to be kept company by the faithful for visitation, contemplative prayer and meditation. Adoration is a sacred time to keep Vigil with the Lord; to spend quiet time with Him.
Let’s Pray Together
Eucharistic Adoration is offered the First Friday of every month, 9:00 AM to 5:30 PM in the Chapel. All are welcome.
November 2 and 3, 2018
Our Parish will join together in 24 hours of Eucharistic Adoration as we welcome the Season of Advent, and begin preparing for the birth of Jesus.
Suggested prayer intentions for Adoration include:
- Return of family members and friends to active participation in their Catholic faith;
- Increase in vocations to priesthood and religious life from our Parish; and
- Spiritual growth in our own lives so that we may be a light to others.
Eucharistic Adoration begins Friday, following the 8:30 AM Mass and closes Saturday, with Benediction at 9:00 AM, in the Chapel. We need at least two individuals for each hour. During the hours of 11:00 PM until 5:00 AM, for safety reasons, we will need at least two men.
Please join us as we accept this invitation to spend a special hour with Jesus!
Join us for dinner, praise and worship music, and Family Adoration!

The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us go meet him in adoration. Saint John Paul II
