Eucharistic Adoration

On the first Friday of each month, Father Robert leads us in prayer and benediction of the Holy Eucharist. Our alter servers assist him in preparation and the rest of the church sings special songs. Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. In the many Churches that have this adoration, the Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and often the night. Christ’s great love for us was shown when he was crucified on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins and give us eternal life. He loves us without limit, and offers Himself to us in the Holy sacrament of the Eucharist. Spend an hour with Jesus this week.
