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. 

Committed Adorers

Without committed adorers for every hour of the week, perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is unsustainable. We need you to help by committing to a weekly recurring hour of Adoration. If you have any questions, contact a coordinator

Substitute Adorers

Without substitute adorers we have no one to take an hour if the regularly scheduled adorer(s) cannot come. Substitutes are a vital part of the Adoration ministry. If you have any questions about becoming a substitute adorer, contact a coordinator

Upcoming Adoration Events

The Fathers of the Oratory and the Eucharistic Adoration Committee seek to foster devotion to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament through special events involving prayer, hymns, and reflections that are focused on Eucharistic Adoration.
