Eucharistic Adoration is our acknowledgment that Jesus is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament. Parishioners of St. Mary and St. Michael and other faithful members of the community have dedicated 24-hour Adoration to Our Lord. Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration, as it is known, is a commitment to never leave our Lord.
St. Mary's and St. Michael’s commitment to Eucharistic Adoration arose from Pope John Paul II’s call for all laity to participate in Eucharistic evangelization “so that the whole people of God could develop a personal relationship with Jesus, Our Savior in the Blessed Sacrament.”
All are welcome to visit the Adoration Chapel. Jesus awaits you. The Adoration Chapel is located at St. Michael's Church off the atrium.
Pope John Paul II explained, “It is by taking time out to be with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament that this relationship with Our Lord begins to increase, and grow and blossom. Perpetual Adoration builds community. The Eucharist is the sacrament of unity, Jesus unifying his people. Through the intimacy of quiet prayer with Jesus, one experiences the personal love of the Savior and grasps the reality that we are all one with the whole Body of Christ.”
A Bright Future
Foremost, the vision for our churches is a passionate and renewed commitment to Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. Jesus is fully present in the Blessed Sacrament, in our chapel, 24/7. What an invitation! Thank you Father Izen for your leadership and support. Thank you “2020 Vision Team” for your faithful and insightful ideas for the future of our Adoration Chapel.
Change is energizing. We make room for new opportunities and growth as we retire both the Post-It-Note prayer board outside the chapel and the box of prayer requests that have gone to the “Our Lady of Good Help Shrine” in the past. On your own, you may continue to send those prayers to the shrine at: 4047 Chapel Drive, New Franken, WI, 54229. In the chapel, we strongly encourage the use of the prayer intentions book.
We are excitedly doing research to launch WeAdoreHim, a premier scheduling tool to aid communications and ensure that Jesus is adored at every Holy Hour of the day. We thank you for your support, financially and prayerfully. Mark Your Calendar: visit us at Donut Sunday on March 1 to learn more and get started!
