Saint Thomas the Apostle Adoration Chapel
What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Eucharistic Adoration is quiet time spent in prayer with Jesus present in the Eucharist. A consecrated host is placed in the center of a monstrance on an altar and there are individuals who commit to a specific weekly prayer hour in the chapel visiting and spending time with the Real Presence of Jesus. It is an expression of love for Jesus, who loves us so much that He never wants to leave us. He says: "Behold I am with you always." Mt 28:20
Pope John Paul II described adoration as "looking upon the face of Christ."
When you visit the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel and see the Sacred Host in the monstrance, this is not a symbol of Jesus, but the reality of Jesus himself. The same Jesus who was born in Bethlehem two thousand years ago, the same Jesus who died on the cross for our sins, and the same Jesus who rose again on Easter Sunday is really truly, bodily, personally present in the chapel.
"This is a wonderful gift I have given myself, to spend this hour with Jesus. There is no better way to spend an hour. The inner peace stays with me all week. I truly look forward to this hour each week."
That's just one adorer sharing what is experienced in the Eucharistic Adoration Chapel.
We invite you to join us, and choose your own weekly quiet hour with the Lord.
New adorers are always welcome!
