Eucharistic Adoration

“The visit to the Blessed Sacrament is a great treasure of the Catholic faith. It nourishes social love and gives us opportunities for adoration and thanksgiving, for reparation and supplication. Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament . . . are likewise precious element of your heritage–in full accord with the teaching of the Second Vatican Council.

It is also my joy to reaffirm before . . . the whole world the wonderful teaching of the Catholic Church regarding Christ’s consoling presence in the Blessed Sacrament: his Real Presence in the fullest sense: the substantial presence by which the whole and complete Christ, God and man, are present (cf. Mysterium Fidei,
39). The Eucharist, in the Mass and outside of the Mass, is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, and is therefore deserving of the worship that is given to the living God, and to him alone” (cf. Mysterium Fidei, 55; Paul VI, Address of 15 June 1978).

~Pope John Paul II, 1979

Exposition, Adoration and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament takes place in the church every First Friday of the month from 10:00 am until 6:45 pm. Mass is then celebrated at 7:00 pm.
