Sacrament of Eucharist

“At the Last Supper, on the night he was betrayed, our Savior instituted the Eucharistic sacrifice of his Body and Blood. This he did in order to perpetuate the sacrifice of the cross throughout the ages until he should come again, and so to entrust to his beloved spouse, the Church, a memorial of his death and resurrection: a sacrament of love, a sign of unity, a bond of charity, a Paschal banquet ‘in which Christ is consumed, the mind is filled with grace, and a pledge of future glory is given to us.”

(CCC 1323)

Catholics believe the Holy Eucharist is both a sacrifice and a meal. We believe in the real presence of Jesus – that Christ is truly the body and blood of the Eucharist. As we receive Christ’s Body and Blood, we are nourished spiritually and brought closer to God.

Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. In most cases, a special holder called a monstrance displays the Eucharist, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and night

Our parish exposes the Blessed Sacrament each week beginning on Tuesday from 7:45 AM until Wednesday at 4:00 PM. If you would like to commit to spending one hour per week in adoration, please call the following coordinators for available time slots.
