Eucharistic Adoration is when we come to adore Jesus Christ, truly present under the appearance of bread in the Holy Eucharist. We should deeply desire many opportunities to spend time with our Lord. He is waiting there in the tabernacle for our visits. Kneeling before Him and pouring out our hearts can melt away our concerns and fears. Nourished by His love, we leave with grace, renewed hope, and peace.

What do I actually do at Adoration?
Remember that you don’t have to “do” anything. Just “be”.
Come and make a visit to Him. Offer Him your prayers, joys, sorrows, actions, sufferings and loved ones. And tell Him that you love Him.
Families are welcome!
Jesus loves to be in the presence of children. Helpful aids for all ages are in the works.
This is a work in progress.
We are learning on the fly. There will be bumps along the way but hang in there. Be understanding and flexible. It will be worth it in the end. Spending time in His presence will change all of us. There are people in our own parish whose lives have been changed by Eucharistic Adoration. It’s going to be exciting to hear what happens here in the future.
This is a lay person’s ministry. It can’t be done without you. We are excited about the opportunity to do this together
Remember that you don’t have to “do” anything during Adoration. You can just sit and look at Jesus… just “be”. All relationships start with being willing to participate, to spend time. Let yourself sit and contemplate… this is Christ… this is what love looks like. Contemplation is a gaze of faith, fixed on Jesus. “I look at Him and He looks at me”: this is what a certain peasant of Ars used to say while praying before the tabernacle. … His gaze purifies our heart; the light of the countenance of Jesus illumines the eyes of our heart and teaches us to see everything in the light of His truth… (CCC, 2715) The Catholic faith recognizes that the greatest gift God gives us is Himself, and Adoration is another way for us to recognize that gift outside of receiving the Eucharist at Mass. So, don’t overthink it. Just receive the gift. Come and make a visit to Him. Offer Him your prayers, joys, sorrows, actions, sufferings, and loved ones. And tell Him that you love Him.
We, the faith community of Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church, in striving to be like Christ, are committed to living the Gospel by participating in the Sacraments, promoting spiritual growth and religious education, and being an example of His Eucharistic love to all.
