Come Let us
Adore Him

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. (CCC, 1380, quoting St. John Paul II’s letter Dominicae Cenae, The Mystery and Worship of the Eucharist) 

What is Eucharistic Adoration?

the fuel of the parish....

It is bare bones. There is no inspiring music or stirring messages, no group activities, no required prayers and certainly no technology. It’s just believers sitting or kneeling in silence for an hour at a time 24/7 in every season.

Those who pray here, called adorers, pray before the Blessed Sacrament (the Body, Blood, Soul & Divinity of Jesus Christ), the consecrated host from Mass placed in an ornate gold container called a monstrance.

They speak of praying directly to Jesus and Keep him company — hence the perpetual one-hour shifts that they sign up for in advance. They are the host for those that need to drop and in and are looking for Jesus.

Those who sign up to be Adorers are required to stay until the next Adorer — who signed up for the following hour — arrives. Most people sign up for an adoration hour in order to deepen their personal prayer, but as a scheduled adorer, the role goes beyond just showing up to spend time with Jesus: they are the host of that time period of adoration, making it possible for other people to stop in and encounter our Lord.
The adorers hospitality and compassion for the people that come into the chapel is the difference between people feeling welcome in the presence of our Lord and those same people feeling like an unwanted intruder who should take their difficulties elsewhere. Adorers are SO important!

Please note: Adorers are not expected to greet guests or interrupt their prayer but allow guests to be alone with Jesus.  Their hospitality consists in a kind demeanor and at most, a smile or a wave.

Weather you become an adorer or you just drop by for a minute to enjoy the company of our Eucharistic Lord, become familiar with His voice, and learn to love Him more deeply. What a special gift!

Where is the Chapel Located?  What time is it open?

What do the Saints say about adoration?

St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta 

"The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time that you will spend on earth. Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in heaven, and will help bring about an everlasting peace on earth." 

St. Alphonsus Liguori 

"Know also that you will probably gain more by praying fifteen minutes before the Blessed Sacrament than by all the other spiritual exercises of the day. True, Our Lord hears our prayers anywhere, for He has made the promise, 'Ask, and you shall receive,' but He has revealed to His servants that those who visit Him in the Blessed Sacrament will obtain a more abundant measure of grace." 

St. John Bosco 

"Trust all things to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament and to Mary Help of Christians and you will see what miracles are." 

St. Padre Pio 

"A thousand years of enjoying human glory is not worth even an hour spent sweetly communing with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament."
