Eucharistic Adoration


Eucharistic Adoration is a quiet, calm, private time in prayer or contemplation in front of our Eucharistic Lord.  When you look upon the Sacred Host, you look upon Jesus, the Son of god.  He is really there!  “I Myself am the Living Bread come down from heaven.”  (Jn. 6:35)  Each moment that you spend in His Eucharistic Presence will increase His Divine Life within you and deepen your personal relationship and friendship with Him.


Adoration is on Friday from 9:30 AM until 7 PM.  You are welcome to join us each week for visitation and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

If you are interested in donating books, please do not leave them in the library. Please contact the parish office to provide a list of authors and titles which you wish to donate. Materials left in the library that do not belong to our collection will be disposed of.
