Eucharistic Adoration

Our parish has Eucharistic Adoration daily in the sacristy at the St Joseph's worship site in Rush.  In fact, we have had an organized adoration effort since 1990.

Are you ready for some 1 on 1 time with Jesus? 

It can be such a peaceful and rewarding experience, won't you give it a try.   Read on...


You might not have heard, a small group of Catholics from ours and other parishes have been meeting for about 6 months to seek ways to encourage devotion and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. We are continuously in touch with the Bishop's Office, and now anticipate seeing a number of coming events, all geared to the objective of bringing awareness of the Eucharistic Revival to the people of the Diocese.

Eucharistic Revival

The National Bishops' Committee has called for a National Eucharistic Revival (link Eucharistic Revival website ) in order to rekindle the flames of devotion to the Most Blessed Sacrament.  Several events are being planned for the Rochester area this year and next.  Plan to attend, and Pray for their success!

Monstrance Radiating the Glory of the Eucharist

During this post-covid period, adoration is filled by appointment and presently limited to one person or family at a time, but we'll do our best to find a time that can work for you. 

For more information about available hours and adoration rules please contact John Steiner (314-2927), Sue Waterstraat (261-5676) or Marianne Hoffkins (533-1971).  If you would like to try out an hour of adoration, or investigate signing up for a weekly adoration hour, or be willing to be an occasional substitute when an adorer cannot make it, please contact us.
