Eucharistic Adoration

In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus says: “Come to me all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light." Jesus wasn't speaking only to his followers 2,000 years ago to spend time with him but he invites us as his followers today to do the same.
For almost 30 years, our parish has been privileged to have a Eucharistic Adoration Chapel at St. Joseph's Church where adorers come away to spend time with Jesus and adore him in the Blessed Sacrament. Eucharistic Adoration hours are available daily. 

If you would like to commit an hour a week in Adoration or as a substitute for other adorers as your schedule permits, please contact Sue Waterstraat at [email protected] or 585-261-5676. We have day time and night time hours, weekdays and weekends in need of adorers.

Below are the hours currently covered by substitutes but in need of weekly adorers. If none of the listed hours fits your schedule, we are happy to work with you to find an hour that does.

  • Sunday 1–2pm; Midnight–1am
  • Monday: 9–10pm
  • Tuesday: 10–11pm
  • Thursday: 9–10am; Noon–1pm; 1–2pm; 9–10pm
  • Friday: Noon–1pm; 5–6pm
  • Saturday: 2–3pm; 7–8pm

More recently, our parish has begun the practice of Monthly First-Friday Holy Hour where we adore Our Lord together as a community at 3 p.m. in the church at St. Joseph's. The holy hour includes Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, prayers, hymns, Scripture, and a reflection by our presider, Father Eloo Nwosu. The Holy Hour ends with Benediction. Please join us as often as you can for our First-Friday Holy Hour. (No commitment is necessary; just come.)
