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.

If you can commit 15 hours per year, you will...
Sign up for one hour of adoration per month, and attend one of the sign-up events; or, serve as a substitute adorer.
Sign up for two hours of adoration per month, and help up set up for and attend the sign-up events.
This plus 7 hours (52 hours total) and you would become one of our regular weekly adorers.
