What Is Eucharistic Adoration?

Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ. In a deeper sense, it involves "the contemplation of the Mystery of Christ truly present before us".

During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait", we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist ... By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.
In its fullest essence ... Eucharistic Adoration is "God and Man reaching out for each other, at the same time!"

Here at St. Patrick Parish, Exposition and Adoration takes place every Friday starting at 3:00 PM with Benediction at 4:00 PM.

On the First Friday of every month, Exposition and Adoration begins immediately following morning Mass (at about 9:00 AM) with Benediction at 4:00 PM.
