Eucharistic Adoration

View all ministries

The Adoration Chapel is open Wednesdays at 8pm until Saturdays at 5pm! We welcome you to come and pray at any time during these hours.

Eucharistic Adoration is the Adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to the Chapel to pray and worship continually throughout the day and night.

Through Eucharistic Adoration, Jesus becomes the very Center and Life of the parish. Jesus waits for us in this Sacrament of Love. Through this Ministry, parishioners commit to attending an hour in prayer in the Chapel, at the same time each week.

The coordinators communicate with the Adorers and serve as information resources regarding schedules, security and emergency procedures. Sign-up events for new Adorers take place twice a year, which also serve as an opportunity to recognize the good work of the Ministry and Adorers.

Please contact the following coordinators if you would like to sign up for Adoration, or if you cannot make your scheduled time:

Sign up for two hours of adoration per month, and help up set up for and attend the sign-up events.

Other ways to help:

Parishioners can participate in the Adoration Committee to manage the Ministry for the parish program.

Parishioners can serve as hourly coordinators for a one hour block of time throughout the week to ensure that an Adorer is present at that specific hour each weekday. He or she also serves as an information resource for his/her Adorers regarding schedules, changes to schedules, vacation changes and emergency procedures.

A Division Coordinator manages a 6 hour block of time to ensure that Adorers are scheduled for each hour. Also serves as an information resource.
