Eucharistic adoration is the act of worshiping God as He is present in the consecrated Eucharist. Since the Last Supper, when Jesus broke the bread and distributed the wine, saying, “This is my Body,” and “This is my Blood,” Catholics have believed that the bread and wine are no longer merely baked wheat and fermented grape juice, but the actual living presence of the Second Person of the Trinity. Spending time before the Blessed Sacrament is exactly the same as spending time before the living God!
~excerpts from “How to Make a Holy Hour” by Fr. George W. Kosicki, CSB
“Adoration means entering into the depths of our hearts in communion with the Lord, who makes Himself bodily present in the Eucharist. In the monstrance, He always entrusts Himself to us and asks us to be united with His Presence, with His risen Body.” ~Pope Benedict XVI
We celebrate Eucharistic Adoration at the following time:
* after the 8:15 AM School Mass on the 1st Friday of each month with Benediction at 1:30 pm.
* each Tuesday from 5pm - 6pm before 6 pm Mass.
This is a special opportunity for all parishioners to spend time in the presence of Jesus Christ.
