What is Eucharistic Adoration?
Understood simply, 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!"
Eucharistic Adoration begins at 4 PM on Thursday and ends at 4 PM on Friday with Benediction in Holy Family Chapel at Our Lady of Lourdes Church.
A Holy Hour is held every Friday from 3 - 4 PM in the Chapel, at which time the Divine Mercy Chaplet and the Evening Office are prayed. All are welcome and encouraged to spend some quiet time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
