Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Watch the Video Tutorial or see instructions below
Adoration will begin February 27th. A welcome email with instructions will be sent on February 24th.
The practice of Eucharistic Adoration is a centuries old ritual and falls within a broader category of devotions and rituals that are associated with the Sacrament of the Eucharist. In a particular way, Eucharistic Adoration is an extension of the worship and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament that occurs in every Mass. Although adoration of the Blessed Sacrament can never take the place of Eucharistic Communion, many Catholics find great comfort and consolation in their prayers before the Eucharist when it is exposed in the monstrance.
Pope St. John Paul II said, “The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic Adoration... Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Jesus and ready to make reparation for the great evils of the world. Let your adoration never cease.”
"Sitting before Christ at Adoration is less about doing than about being." Spend time with Christ in the quiet. Pray, think, read. Just be.
