Adoration with Pope Francis
World Youth Day (WYD)
Rio 2013


Spend some quiet time with Our Lord!

Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ, who we believe to be present Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, under the appearance of the consecratedSacred Heart Church | Adoration host, in the form of bread or hosts. As a devotion, Eucharistic adoration and meditation are more than simply looking at the the Eucharistic Host, but rather, an intimate interaction between the adorer and Christ.

We will be holding Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on the first Tuesday of every month. Exposition will be during 8:00 am Mass and reposition will begin at 6:45 pm.

Upcoming dates are: November 3 and December 1

Please use the north doors when you come to Adoration. In the event of a funeral, Adoration will be suspended for the duration of the funeral but will resume after for the remainder of the time.

"Adoration is essentially an embrace with Jesus in which I say to him: I am yours, and I ask you, please stay with me always." 
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

  • Say prayers
  • Visit our bookshelf for ideas
  • Talk to Jesus about whatever is on your mind
  • Journal
