Eucharistic Adoration is the act of worshipping Jesus Christ in His real presence in the consecrated Eucharist. Eucharistic Adoration in our adoration chapel, the Chapel of the Annunciation, runs continuously from 6:00 PM Sunday evening until 8:00 AM Friday morning—however, the chapel is closed during daily Mass.
Eucharistic Adoration is a time for silent prayer. It may be time to read spiritual material, pray a Rosary or other devotion, meditate with Scripture, or simply ¬sit in the presence of the Lord.
Visitors are always welcome to stop by, but we would encourage everyone to consider becoming a regular part of this ministry by committing one hour each week to Eucharistic Adoration. Hundreds of people are needed to maintain a constant vigil of one or more adorers in the chapel every hour. It is best to commit to a regular day and hour, but if scheduling is difficult, the ministry also welcomes those who are willing to be “on call” and fill in for others.
The personal and communal fruits of Eucharistic Adoration are many. Focus on the Eucharist—on Christ—leads us to greater repentance and charity and a deeper desire for personal holiness, strengthens our bond to our local parish and the Church, has traditionally been linked to better service to the poor, and more recently has led to an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
So you could not keep watch with me for one hour? Matthew 26:40
