THE ADORATION CHAPEL


In Mass, bread and wine are completely transubstantiated into the real presence of Christ. The Eucharist is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ. During Eucharistic Adoration, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in a monstrance and adored by the faithful.

Adoration is a Eucharistic devotion whereby members of a parish unite in taking hours of adoration before the Most Blessed Sacrament, both during the day and the night, seven days a week.

The parish has an Adoration chapel where one experiences quiet intimacy with the Lord. The chapel can seat twenty four adorers in comfortable pews. Prayer cushions are provided. Here, one may pray an informal prayer, sit in silence, read a spiritual book, pray the rosary, meditate on the Eucharist, or contemplate the saints' lives. The key is general reverence with an emphasis on quiet. This is a personal time with Jesus. Parishioners are invited to commit to a weekly hour of adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.

"Where will you get the joy of loving? In the Eucharist, the Holy Communion. Jesus has made Himself the Bread of Life to give us life. Night and day, He is there. If you really want to grow in love, come back to the Eucharist, come back to that Adoration." 

- St Teresa of Calcutta
