Eucharistic Adoration is an opportunity to come before the Real and True Presence of the Lord and "Encounter" Christ. In the peace and quiet of adoration, one may clear away the hectic pace of daily life, pour out fears and failings and ask for God's blessing and guidance in all things. Volunteers are needed to take one-hour shifts each Friday to keep company with the Lord, to give Him thanks for all the blessings He has given us, to make up for all the disrespect Our Lord receives in this sacrament, and to pray for the unborn and Vocations to the religious life. Adoration begins each Friday with exposition of the Blessed Sacrament immediately after the 8:00 a.m. mass and concludes with benediction at 5:00 p.m.
