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.”
New! Every Sunday from 5 to 6 pm is Family Holy Hour. All are welcome during this time set aside for appreciating the fullness of children. Teach and be taught by the little ones. New books have been added to the children's shelf in the chapel. Kids are ADORE-able!
