ADORATION

Adoration

Will you spend an hour with Christ?   

Jesus left us a wonderful gift, His Body and Blood in the Holy Eucharist, his true presence in the consecrated bread and wine. In Adoration, the consecrated Host, the Precious Body, is placed in the Monstrance on the Altar and left in full view for adorers. We should have two people per hour to pray in front of Jesus. The adorers choose a time that is best for them and stay with that hour and day each week. For example, someone could choose 10:00 Monday morning and would then come each Monday at that time and sign in at the register at the back of the chapel. Those who spend one or more hours with Jesus say it is the best hour of their week. Amazing things have happened in their spiritual lives. It is one hour alone with Jesus to pray, say the rosary, read the bible, give thanks, or just spend quiet time with Jesus, as you would with a dear friend.

Contact Sheila Siefert at (972) 279-6581 for further information and current needs.
