Eucharistic Adoration

“Exposition of the Holy Eucharist … leads us to acknowledge Christ’s marvelous presence in the Sacrament and invites us to the spiritual union with  Him that culminates in sacramental Communion. Therefore it is a strong encouragement toward the worship owed to Christ in spirit and in truth.”  (Holy Communion and Worship of the Eucharist Outside Mass)

Parishioners are invited to join us every Friday for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Exposition takes place at 9:00 AM following the morning Mass, and Adoration continues until Benediction at 12:00 noon. This is a wonderful time to rest in the presence of the Lord, to pray for the needs of our world, and to ask God to continually bless his people. Parishioners are invited to stop by at any time. If you are interested in committing to a weekly or monthly time slot, please contact the parish office.

“Beyond the liturgy that convokes us into church and congregation, there is the prayer we each must offer to the Father quietly and alone. We contemplate the living God, offering ourselves to be drawn into His love and learning to take that same love to heart. We enter thus into the mystery of the God who chose to dwell in the midst of his people. His eucharistic presence is the pledge of that. It is especially appropriate then for us to pray in the presence of the reserved Eucharist. Each of us needs the nourishment of at least one half-hour of quiet prayer daily.” —Constitutions of the Congregation of Holy Cross (3.30)

The National Eucharistic Revival is a three-year initiative of the Catholic Church in the United States to inspire, educate, and unite the faithful around the Eucharist. In a world where not many people know Jesus intimately, the revival is meant to show everyone what wonders the True Presence of Jesus can do to heal the soul. The revival, launched on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi) in June of 2022, has a mission to “renew the Church by enkindling a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.” The initiative continues within parishes and dioceses with various events leading up to the National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis in July of 2024.
