Eucharistic Adoration is the act of worshipping God as He is present in the Blessed Sacrament (consecrated Eucharist). Since the Last Supper, when Jesus broke bread and shared wine with His disciples and said "This is my Body" and "This is my Blood," Catholics have believed that this bread and wine are the Body and Blood of the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, Jesus Christ. Spending time before the Blessed Sacrament is time spent before our Heavenly God. Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is continuous exposition of the Blessed Sacrament for the purpose of uninterrupted adoration, twenty-four hours a day – seven days a week. Jesus welcomes everyone to visit and spend time with Him regularly.
In May 1997, parishioners at St. Mary Church began adoring Jesus in the Holy Eucharist 7 days a week – 24 hours a day. This devotion has continued to this day! The parish and those who participate have received numerous blessings from spending time with Jesus.
Let us pray for you!
