What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Eucharistic Adoration is quiet time spent in prayer with Jesus present in the Eucharist. A consecrated host is placed in the center of a monstrance on an altar and there are individuals who commit to a specific weekly prayer hour in the chapel visiting and spending time with the Real Presence of Jesus. It is an expression of love for Jesus, who loves us so much that He never wants to leave us. He says: "Behold I am with you always." Mt 28:20
Pope John Paul II described adoration as "looking upon the face of Christ."
When you visit the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel and see the Sacred Host in the monstrance, this is not a symbol of Jesus, but the reality of Jesus himself. The same Jesus who was born in Bethlehem two thousand years ago, the same Jesus who died on the cross for our sins, and the same Jesus who rose again on Easter Sunday is really truly, bodily, personally present in the chapel.
YOU are invited to come spend some time with Jesus and in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament every THURSDAY FROM 10 am until 2 pm and every FRIDAY FROM 6 pm concluding with Holy Mass at 7.30 pm.
