Eucharistic Adoration

Do you feel the Lord drawing you to a deeper relationship with him and with his people? "Our Lord always has time for us and wants to help each of us live a full and joyful life. He is never too busy, too tired, too preoccupied...and he is there for us night and day in the Blessed Sacrament. That's why I come to adoration” answered one of our adorers. A Priest once said: "who else can understand the longings of the human heart better than the One who created it?" Can you help us ensure we don't lose this awesome privilege of daily Adoration in our parish by becoming a weekly adorer or a substitute for other adorers? You will definitely benefit from your commitment. (God can NEVER be outdone in generosity!) Even if you sign up to adore an hour a week, there will be times you can't keep your hour. This is never a problem; that's when our substitutes come in! To become a weekly adorer or substitute as your schedule allows, or just for more information about adoration (i.e., what does one do during an hour of adoration?), please contact Sue Waterstraat at  [email protected] or contact the office at 334-3518.

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

And monthly we have a First-Friday Holy Hour; we adore Our Lord together as a community at 3 p.m. in the church at St. Joseph's. Adoration is in the church and also includes 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.)
