Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration
Eucharistic Adoration is the act of worshiping God as He is present in the consecrated Eucharist. Spending time before the Blessed Sacrament, in prayer and devotion, is exactly the same as spending time before the living God. Adoration occurs whenever someone kneels in front of the tabernacle, bows before receiving the Blessed Sacrament at Mass, or, in a more focused way, when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for Adoration. Beginning June 29th, 2008, the Oratory was pleased to begin a schedule of perpetual Adoration at the Donnelly Chapel of St. Philip Neri. Local “continuous adorers” commit to keep watch with our Eucharistic Lord day and night to make this devotion available to the public during the building’s open hours. Please call the Oratory with questions about how to sign up as a scheduled adorer or what you may do to help foster devotion to our Lord in the Eucharist.
