Perpetual Adoration is when the Holy Eucharist is exposed in a monstrance or ciborium on an altar, every hour of the day, and every day of the week. It is required that at least two adorers are to be scheduled at all times. In case one of them has an emergency or cannot attend there is always someone present with the exposed Blessed Sacrament. Wherever the Eucharist is, Christ is present – Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, and therefore must never be left alone without an adorer when exposed.
Adoration flows from and leads to the Eucharistic Liturgy of the Church. When the Eucharist is adored the prayers, readings, art, devotions and music are all to be Christos centered. An atmosphere of quiet and reverence must be maintained at all times. Pope Paul VI wrote: “To visit the Blessed Sacrament is… a proof of gratitude, and expression of love, and a duty of adoration toward Christ our Lord.”

On the chart, ‘Green Faces’ have at least two adorers
‘Yellow Faces’ have only one adorer and need another for back-up
When no adorer is registered the face will be ‘Red’
This chart is also posted at the entrance of the Church and Chapel. You may choose any hour that best suits your needs, but we hope all hours of the week will have at least two scheduled adorers (Green Faces). Then fill out the Registration Form.
