Eucharistic Adoration

"The greatness of the love which Jesus has for every soul in the state of grace is something that no tongue coule adequately express. When He wished to depart this life, this sweet Spouse of souls, lest His absence might cause them to forget Him, left to them as a memorial the Blessed Sacrament, in which He Himself remained. His own self was the only pledge He wished should remain between these souls and Himself, that they might always remember Him." - St. Peter of Alcantara

Love Him, praise Him, thank Him, beg Him for mercy and forgiveness, tell Him what you want. He is waiting for you in the Blessed Sacrament. Go and spend some time with Him.

Weekly Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament: Our weekly Eucharistic Adoration will resume on Wednesday, September 8th from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. We encourage everyone to sign up for adoration and spend time with Our Lord. If interested, please contact the Parish Office at 856-881-0909.

"Take advantage of your short time on earth. Do those things that will lead you to eternal life."

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 Midnightin Holy Family Chapel at Our Lady of Lourdes Church.

All are welcome and encouraged to spend some quiet time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
