"The best time you will spend on Earth." - Mother Teresa
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.
Friday Eucharistic Adorations are typically in the Church and will be livestreamed. Occasionally, Friday Adoration may take place in the Chapel and will not be livestreamed. It is not always possible to announce the location prior to the event. Masks are no longer required. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask, then please continue to do so. Everyone will respect each individual’s choice during this time.
