Eucharistic Adoration

PERPETUAL EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

ST. ALFRED ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

Dear Parishioners,

As your Pastor, I would like to personally invite you to experience and participate in the heart of our Faith community: our Eucharistic Adoration Chapel. As a priest and as a Christian, it has been my greatest joy to experience the overwhelming, personal love of Jesus Christ for ME. Nowhere do I feel this so keenly as when I kneel before our loving Saviour in the stillness and silence of His Real Presence in the Blessed Sacrament. It is my ardent desire that you too will experience the Love of Our Lord Jesus, and for this reason I invite you to prayerfully consider taking this beautiful step in your faith. 

What is Eucharistic Adoration?

Eucharistic adoration is the act of worshiping God as He is present in the consecrated Eucharist. Since the Last Supper, when Jesus broke the bread and distributed the wine, saying, “This is my Body” and “This is my Blood,” Catholic have believed and known that Eucharist is the actual living presence of the Second Person of the Trinity. Time spent before the Blessed Sacrament, in prayer and devotion, is exactly the same as time spent before the living God. Adoration occurs whenever someone kneels in front of a tabernacle that contains the Blessed Sacrament, genuflects toward a tabernacle, bows before receiving the Blessed Sacrament at Mass, or, in a more focused way, when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for Adoration.

What Do I Need to Become an Adorer?

To become a Permanent Adorer, you will need to commit to at least one hour a week with the Lord. For example: You have signed up to adore on Fridays from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m.; that means you will be the person responsible to make sure Jesus is not left alone, and to allow others to freely come and adore him.

 

 

Where Do I Sign Up?                     

                             to fill out the sign-up & consent forms to become a Permanent Adorer or                       to become a Casual Adorer,  which we would ask you to fill out and return either to the parish office or by emailing it to office@stalfredcatholicchurch.ca

Eucharistic Adoration takes place Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. 

Yours in the Love of Christ,

 

Fr. Hugh Gibson, Pastor
