JESUS WAITS FOR US IN THIS SACRAMENT OF LOVE
“In the Sacred Host, He is present, the true treasure, always waiting for us. Only by adoring this Presence do we learn how to receive Him properly.”
WHAT IS EUCHARISTIC ADORATION?
It is honoring and contemplating the Real Presence of Jesus. During Eucharistic Adoration, we “watch and wait,” we remain silent in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist. By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet, the Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.
Jesus waits for us in the Blessed Sacrament. He waits for our little Acts of faith, adoration, love, thanksgiving, repentance, reparation, and charity that we can offer Him.
QUEEN OF APOSTLES EUCHARISTIC ADORATION:
Continual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament begins each Monday at 7:00 AM and concludes on Saturday at 7:45 AM. The chapel is closed on Federal Holidays.
