Welcome to 2021 - a NEW YEAR for all of us !
This is our Adoration Group Page - from here you can sign up for different shifts for upcoming Adorations below. Just click on the Adoration you wish to sign up for, then choose a slot or shift.
We ask everyone to sign in to ensure that we keep company with Our Lord throughout the entire time the Monstrance with the exposed Eucharist stays on the altar. Our respect for His Divinity deserves nothing less.
“The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth” – Saint Teresa of Calcutta
From the early days of "official" Adoration when Pope Clement VIII issued the 1592 document know in Italian as the "Quarant' Ore", (Forty Hours) to today in 2018 the Adoration has become a humbling experience for believers in Christ.
Adorations have a spiritual value beyond our understanding; it is said that: “Jesus waits for us in this Sacrament of Love”. St. Alphonsus Liguori spoke of The Eucharist as a priceless treasure: “By not only celebrating the Eucharist, but also by praying before It outside of Mass, we are enabled to make contact with the very wellsprings of Grace ..." Can’t really find too many people who couldn’t use a little more “Grace”.
Thank you – for all of your support !
God Bless !
