Eucharistic Adoration? Huh?

Throughout the season of Lent, one of the services that was most appreciated was the Holy Hour held each Thursday. The primary function of this service is in creating time for the congregation to come and pray before the exposed Blessed Sacrament in Eucharistic Adoration. 

Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us." During this time before the Blessed Sacrament, 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. In its fullest essence ... Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other, at the same time!''

Each Thursday, beginning June 5, Eucharistic Adoration will be available in the church from 12-1 PM. The Daughters of the King will coordinate volunteers who will pray and intercede during this time. But all are welcome. Monthly, the full service of Holy Hour, with prayers and a Benediction (the Blessing of the congregation with the Blessed Sacrament) will take place. This month it will take place on the Feast of Corpus Christi, June 19th.
