Come spend some time with our Lord.
First Friday Eucharistic Adoration is on the first Friday of each month beginning with Mass at 12:00pm and adoration from 12:30pm to 6:15pm in church. Sign-up sheets are located in the gathering space and we are in need of more people at this time. If you are unable to sign up for a particular hour, come and pray anytime that day.
What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us." During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait,” we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist.
By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be. Like a magnet, the Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us. In its fullest essence, Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other at the same time!"
What do you actually do during Eucharistic Adoration?
You may sign up to be an "adorer" for one or more hours to pray before the very presence of Our Lord exposed in the monstrance. It means that you can have some time with Jesus to recite your favorite prayers, read the bible, contemplate acts of faith, hope, charity, thanksgiving, reparation, pray a rosary or do whatever type of prayerful devotion that suits you before Our Lord. You can just sit and say nothing simply keeping Him company, just as you would with a dear friend.
