The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Church’s life and ministry. Because, as Catholics, we believe that Christ is truly and substantially present in the Eucharist, the Blessed Sacrament is given the same adoration and devotion that is accorded to Christ. Understood simply, Eucharistic Adoration is adoring or honoring the Eucharistic Presence of Christ.
Eucharistic Exposition and Benediction
Exposition of the Eucharist is offered in the chapel as follows:
- each Monday immediately following the 9:30 a.m. Mass and continuing until Benediction on Thursday morning at 6:45 a.m.
- beginning on the first Friday of each month following the 9:30 a.m. Mass and continuing until Benediction on Sunday at 8:00 a.m. First Friday Devotions are offered at the start of Exposition.
- First Saturday Devotions are offered at 7:30 a.m. There is a Children’s Hour of Adoration on Saturday at 10:00 a.m. The Rosary, using the Companion Book, will be prayed at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.
Please note that if the 1st weekend is a holiday weekend, Exposition will be moved to the following weekend.
Committed adorers are still needed in order to fulfill the requirement of at least 2 persons in attendance when the Sacrament is exposed. If you are available to commit to a standing time, please contactat (586) 731-8192. A sign up board is also available in the hallway near the chapel. Even if you are unable to commit to a standing time, you are welcome (and encouraged) to stop by at your convenience and spend some time in prayer.
