Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
Opened on June 26, 2019, the Divine Mercy Perpetual Adoration Chapel at St. Joseph has already produced many great fruits. Parishioners take turns filling the hours, so that around the clock, every day, at least one person is praying.
All are welcome in the chapel. You do not need to register for an hour to spend time with Jesus there.
However, all are welcome to sign up for a weekly hour. Contact the adoration chapel coordinator, whose name and number are in the bulletin.
“Eucharistic adoration is the act of worshiping God as He is present in the consecrated Eucharist. Since the Last Supper, when Jesus broke the bread and distributed the wine, saying, ‘This is my Body,’ and ‘This is my Blood,’ Catholics have believed that the bread and wine are no longer merely baked wheat and fermented grape juice, but the actual living presence of the Second Person of the Trinity. Spending time before the Blessed Sacrament is exactly the same as spending time before the living God! ~excerpts from “How to Make a Holy Hour” by Fr. George W. Kosicki, CSB
“Adoration means entering into the depths of our hearts in communion with the Lord, who makes Himself bodily present in the Eucharist. In the monstrance, He always entrusts Himself to us and asks us to be united with His Presence, with His risen Body.” ~Pope Benedict XVI
