Adoration & Holy Hours

“Personally, I have experienced a need for silent adoration which gives me strength, consolation and support. This Eucharistic Practice is the devotion of the saints."

Pope John Paul IILetter on the Eucharist

“Behold the Heart which has so loved men that It has spared nothing, even to exhausting and consuming Itself, in order to testify Its love;
… I so ardently thirst to be loved in the Most Blessed Sacrament that this thirst devours Me.”

— Jesus to St. Margaret Mary in Adoration

“Of all devotions, that of adoring Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the greatest after the sacraments”

St. Alphonsis of Liquori

Standing Guard:  Committed Adorers and Substitutes

** Chapel Open & Close Guidelines Here (Bilingual)

Arrive on Time

&

Sign-In Before

Entering Chapel

  • Please  be in chapel no later than start of your committed hour; the preceding Committed Adorer (CA) must stay until you are present.
  • Check-in on our IPAD as soon as you arrive (directions available in chapel).
  • It is imperative that Jesus not be left alone; please remain in chapel for full hour and do not leave until the next hour’s Committed Adorer has arrived, even if there are other adorers present in the chapel.

My Hour is over

but next

Committed Adorer

Has Not Arrived

  • If  able, please continue with Adoration until next CA arrives, even if other adorers are present.
  • If  unable to stay, you may ask a present adorer if they are willing & committed to stay until next CA arrives.
  • Otherwise, before leaving chapel, call Coordinator.  If unable to reach Coordinator, please call Assistant Coordinator or if within parish office hours, call the office.
  • Always notify Coordinator if you found Jesus unattended, or if CA’s are absent.

Must Miss Your

Committed Hour?

Please provide a

Substitute.

  • A Committed Adorer is a commitment to Jesus first; you are a vital part of this ministry.  Please faithfully attend and be on time to your Holy Hour. Avoid all unnecessary cancellations; make every attempt to plan other activities & volunteer opportunities around your commitment to Jesus.
  • If unable to make your Holy Hour, please make every effort to find a reliable substitute. If your substitute is unfamiliar with adoration, please review all necessary guidelines & procedures –stress importance of being on time & signing in as a “Substitute for” so previous CA’s know they may leave.  It is best to lineup suitable substitutes and familiarize them with the guidelines before the need arises. Suggestions: spouse, sibling, adult child, parish or ministry friend.
  • You may put out an automated substitute request through our online system WeAdoreHim.  We suggest a minimum of 6 hours notice in using the automated substitute request.

Not able to obtain

suitable substitute?

  • NEVER assume that your CA partner(s), no matter how consistent, or “someone”, will be present.
  • Did you make a  substitute request through our online system WeAdoreHim?  A minimum of 6 hours notice is required for the automated substitute request.
  • Always notify the Coordinator if you will miss your Holy Hour & do not have a substitute arranged, even if it’s just prior to the start of your hour (emergency situation, inclement weather, etc);  the Coordinator will arrange a substitute for you.
