Adoration

"Every Holy Hour we make, so pleases the Heart of Jesus that is recorded in Heaven and retold for all eternity!" - Bl. Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Yes, truly.  He promised to be with us through the end of time and He is present, body, soul and divinity in all the tabernacles of the Catholic Church.  Our small chapel offers an intimate ambiance with your encounter with the Lord.  You will come in close proximity to the Lord exposed in our chapel monstrance.  There is room for three adorers. Some adorers have taken an hour as a family hour of prayer.

He is there veiled from His true glory so we will not find His majesty intimidating. He comes humbly disguised as a consecrated host, so sinners that we are, may approach Him without trepidation and avail ourselves to His great unfathomable mercy.  He is very much present to us as He was to the apostles when He walked the earth over two thousand years ago.  What He did for others He will do for us, if we approach Him with faith.  Holy Scripture is packed with stories of what He did for those who approached Him in sincere faith.

Spend an hour or more a week with the Lord. Use the time to contemplate the mystery of His Real Presence and how fortunate we are to come in such close proximity to Him.  Petition Him to guide you in your life decisions, speak to Him about your concerns. Thank Him for the blessings in your life.  Some blessings are disguised as hardships in our lives.  Only when we sit and contemplate with the Lord can we even appreciate the hardships we go through.

We have an eclectic collection of reading materials in the chapel to introduce your intellect to the spiritual reality of God and how He operates. 

Download the Confession Guide to jump start your contemplative time with Him.  Maintain a prayer journal and you will see how He responds in unprecedented ways in your life and you will learn that all the good lucks you have experienced were really His explicit interventions in your life.

Why wait - sign up for an  hourly appointment with the Lord each week.
