Spend Time with Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration

Suppose you were told that Jesus wanted to meet with you personally for an hour at your parish. Would you say no to such an invitation?

The personal spiritual blessings that proceed from Eucharistic Adoration are rich and abundant.

Do you wish to deepen your prayer life? The same Jesus who taught his disciples how to pray is there to help you as well, and what better place to contemplate Jesus — the highest form of prayer — than in his presence?

“The only time our Lord asked the Apostles for anything was the night he went into his agony. Not for activity did he plead but for an hour of companionship.” - Venerable Fulton Sheen 

Please consider committing to a weekly Holy Hour in the presence of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament. Substitutes are also welcome. Contact: Mary Ann at (757) 565-3486 (please leave a message) or
