Eucharistic Adoration

Monstrance

My God, my God, You are my God,
Earnestly I seek you; I thirst for you,
My whole being longs for you in a dry and parched land where there is no water.
I have seen you in the sanctuary,
I have beheld your power and your glory.
Because your love is better than life,
My lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live; and in your name, I will lift up my hands.

Did you know? For over 25 years now, St. Marianne Cope parishioners and other Catholics in the area have set aside an hour a week of quiet time to adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament at our Adoration Chapel in St. Joseph's Church. Adorers often say taking this scheduled time for quiet reflection out of their hectic lives helps them grow in their love for Jesus and His Church and has the added benefit of strengthening their love and relationships with others to better live the Commandment "Love your neighbor as yourself".

If you would like to be on our weekly schedule as an adorer, there are many hours that need coverage. Adorers are scheduled daily from 6am until Midnight. (From 6pm until Midnight, we are asking for two adorers an hour which is a perfect opportunity for husbands and wives, friends, siblings, co-workers, parish ministries, etc.) Perhaps rather than an hour a week, being a substitute on an as available basis for other adorers works better for you? Either way, please know you are needed. To get on the schedule, become a substitute, or to come and see our chapel, please call our hours coordinator, Sue Waterstraat at 261-5676 or email her at suewater@rochester.rr.com.

If you would like to be on our schedule as a weekly adorer, please consider one of the below listed hours that are currently covered by substitutes:

  • Monday 910am23pm1011pm
  • Tuesday 1-2pm; 910pm
  • Wednesday9–10am
  • Thursday 4-5pm9–10pm
  • Friday: 67am11amnoon23pm; 4–5pm
  • Saturday: noon–1pm8–9pm
  • Sunday 1–2pm5–6pm

Please know your help is needed as either a weekly adorer or substitute for other adorers. Thank you for considering and God bless you.

If any of the hours above fit your schedule but not weekly; but you could come once or twice a month, that is an option, as well. Or, maybe you have a family member or friend who would like to share an hour of Adoration with you? (You are evangelizing when you invite someone to come to Adoration.)

If you would like to take a look at St. Joseph's adoration chapel without making a commitment, please contact contact Mrs. Sue Waterstraat at <suewater@rochester.rr.com> for access.
