Eucharistic Adoration

Almighty God’s love for us is so great, He wants to be as close to us as possible. We see this in His incarnation —becoming flesh and blood—in Jesus. Even though He ascended into Heaven, our Lord wants to remain present with us; therefore, He gave us the Eucharist (Catechism #1380). 


What is Eucharistic Adoration?

The devotion of Eucharistic Adoration dates back to the early days of the Church. Adoration begins with a priest or deacon removing the sacred host from the tabernacle and placing it in the Monstrance on the Altar for adoration by the faithful. “Monstrance”, comes from the Latin word monstrare, meaning “to expose” and is the vessel that is used to display the consecrated Eucharistic Host on the Altar. 


What do you do during Eucharistic Adoration?

Adoration is a time for us to be present with our Lord - spending time with Him in prayer and listening to His word. While in Adoration, we can read and/or reflect on Scripture Readings or other spiritual writings, pray through the Holy Rosary or any other dear devotions, talk with God through mental prayer or journaling or rest quietly, listening to what God may be saying to you or just enjoy being in the presence of our Lord. 


While we can pray to God anywhere, spending time before the Blessed Sacrament holds a special place in Christian tradition because in it, our Lord is fully present: body and blood, soul and divinity (Catechism #1374). 


Peace, discernment of vocations, answers to prayers, healings, and many other things happen when we spend time with our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.

In Adoration, we can speak with Him about everything. We can offer our petitions, our troubles, our joys, our gratitude, and our needs. Above all, we can remember to pray.


“When we face the sun we get a tan … but when we stand before Jesus in the Eucharist we become saints.” ~ Blessed Carlo Acutis

Parish Adoration Hours:

After the 11:00 AM Mass to 8:00 PM

from Monday through Friday in Saint Joseph’s Chapel.


Help Is Needed Adoration of the Holy Eucharist!

Please prayerfully consider spending some time (one hour is preferable but can be less if your time is limited) with our Lord.


Any questions or to sign up contact Andrea South at 973-698-6863.

May Our Lord Bless You.
