Good friends find pleasure in one another’s company. Let us know pleasure in the company of our best Friend, a Friend who can do everything for us, a friend who loves us beyond measure. Here in the Blessed Sacrament we can talk to him straight from the heart.
— St Alphonsus de Liguori

Questions:

  • What is Adoration?

    Well, the brief answer is this: it’s simply praying before the Eucharist while it’s not hidden in the tabernacle but rather out on the altar. Father Robert Barron says the word "adoration" comes from the Latin "ad oratio," which literally translates to "mouth to mouth." There’s really only two occasions when we are mouth to mouth with someone: either it’s a kiss or it’s a moment when you’re saving someone’s life. In short, Adoration is an intimate time before the Lord.

  • Okay, well what do I do during Adoration?

    You can journal, read the Bible or a spiritual book, pray the rosary, kneel or sit or even crawl to the very front of the Church and sit on the marble steps before the altar.

  • Do I have to sign up to come?

    Nope! Come whenever! Our schedules reflect what’s most important in our lives, so where is prayer life in yours? Many people need a scheduled time to pray.

  • What if I want to sign up for more than one time slot?

    Awesome! You are totally welcome to. Just try not to commit to more than what you can do! Simply refresh the page and submit another form with any extra time slots.

  • What if I can’t make it one week?

    Please try and find a replacement or email Brother Nelson to let us know.

  • What if I have to leave early?

    This is an important question. Because the Eucharist is exposed, we should never leave it out unguarded. That’s why it’s important to always have someone present. If you have to leave early or if the person for the next time slot hasn’t arrived and you’re ‘stuck there,’ you can call Brother Nelson.
