Holy Family is very blessed to have Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration where anyone can come into the real presence of Jesus at any time. Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. Because we believe that Christ is truly and substantially present in the Eucharist, the Blessed Sacrament is given the same adoration and devotion that is accorded to Christ.
May 21 will be the 25th anniversary since the start of Perpetual Adoration. One reason is that people are willing to adore the Lord at all hours of the day.
Eucharistic Adoration is open to all and is available 24/7/362 (it’s closed from Holy Thursday until after the final Easter Sunday Mass) in the Divine Mercy Adoration Chapel. This chapel is the small building nearby the main church in the parking lot.
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. Perpetual Adoration is Eucharistic Adoration round the clock (that is, twenty-four hours a day). A “Holy Hour” is “Eucharistic Adoration of Reparation” which lasts for about an hour.
There is no training needed to be with Jesus and you can volunteer for an hour a week, an hour a month, or be part of the substitute list (overnight hours have a special need for scheduled adorers and substitutes). Be a part of something that will transform your life and the life of your Parish. Jesus is waiting for you!
