Eucharistic Adoration

Adoration in the Chapel
As Catholics, we believe the Eucharist is the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ--meaning that the host that a priest consecrates at Mass truly becomes Jesus. 

Eucharistic Adoration is a devotion where the Eucharist is displayed in a monstrance (example to right) for a period of time for prayer. Because Jesus is present before us in the Eucharist, praying during Eucharistic Adoration can be a powerful experience and help us grow closer to God, who always wants to be with us. Some will choose to pray silently, others with scripture or a rosary, and some will choose to read from a spiritual book; no matter how you pray, know that Jesus is truly with you. 

Pope John Paul II said, "The Church and the world have a great need for Eucharistic worship. Jesus awaits us in this sacrament of love. Let us not refuse the time to go to meet him in adoration, in contemplation full of faith, and open to making amends for the serious offenses and crimes of the world. Let our adoration never cease."

Join us for Adoration every Thursday from 8am-8pm (unless otherwise noted) in the chapel. Jesus would love to see you.
