Eucharistic Adoration is prayer and time spent in the presence of the consecrated Eucharist. This devotion developed in the 13th century. The consecrated Eucharist, outside of the Mass, is reserved in the locked tabernacle. For adoration, the consecrated Eucharist is ‘exposed’ in a special gold monstrance and placed on the altar as an opportunity for us to extend our thanksgiving and communion with Jesus outside of the Mass.
We are blessed to be able to offer Eucharistic Adoration at our Parish on all Fridays of the year. All are welcome and encouraged to stop by to experience the true presence of Christ in this special way. It is like a ‘mini-retreat’ according to one adorer. Prayer books and rosaries are available for your use during adoration, or you are invited to just sit quietly, gazing at the Blessed Sacrament, and taking in the grace and peace that comes from being with Christ.
All Adoration schedules are subject to change in the event of a funeral.
