Adoration means entering the depths of our hearts in communion with the Lord, who makes himself bodily present in the Eucharist. In the monstrance, he always entrusts himself to us and asks us to be united with his Presence, with his risen body. - Pope Benedict XVI
We are blessed to have Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration here in our Parish. Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is the adoration of Jesus Christ present in the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist is displayed in a special holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray and worship Jesus continually throughout the day and the night, 24 hours a day, 7 days per week.
Come visit our Perpetual Adoration Chapel, located on the northeast side of the church, and spend some time with our Lord. He is waiting to embrace you, lovingly and mercifully. You may:
- bring your own prayer books
- pray the Rosary
- pray the Psalms or the Liturgy of the Hours
- meditate using Scriptures, asking God to let them speak to you
- just sit in peace with the Lord
You are coming to visit your best friend, share what's in your heart. Tell Him about your joys and worries, thank Him, ask for guidance and strength, ask for forgiveness and intercede for others, or just sit in silence and enjoy the sweet peace that comes from simply being in the Presence of God.
If you would like to support Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration at St. Patrick, or would like to sign up as an adorer, contact one of our Adoration Coordinators.

"God's love for us is poured out in the most blessed sacrament of the Eucharist where “the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity, of our Lord Jesus Christ and, therefore, the whole Christ is truly, really, and substantially contained." The Catechism of the Catholic Church
