The real and living presence of Jesus is directly and constantly available to us in our Perpetual Adoration chapel. The monstrance on the altar cradles a consecrated host—it holds for us the ongoing miracle of Jesus, in the flesh of the Blessed Sacrament, for our benefit. Adoration is the greatest devotion we can have to Our Lord, second only to worshiping Him in the most holy sacrifice of the Mass. Adoration itself is an extension of the Mass.
Having 24/7 access to Jesus in our Perpetual Adoration chapel is an incredible privilege. It’s our individual and collective duty to worship, guard, accompany and adore Him, as He sits before us in His exposed and vulnerable state.
We never leave Jesus alone! This is of utmost importance. Out of respect, love, courtesy and the need for us to protect the Real Presence of Jesus in His exposed and vulnerable state, an adorer must always be present in our perpetual adoration chapel (except during Masses /when He is reposed). We never abandon Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Our adorers are very committed people, but mistakes and emergencies do occur. On rare occasion, the next scheduled adorer(s) will arrive late… or not at all. Please stay until the next committed adorer shows up or ask someone currently present if they can stay to cover the rest of the hour.
Respect the presence of the Lord. Upon entering/exiting the chapel pew, those physically able are asked to momentarily genuflect on both knees before Jesus’ real presence in the exposed Blessed Sacrament, and many adorers further choose to touch their hands and/or forehead to the ground in a kneeling prostrate form.
Respect the silence. The chapel is a place of peace, rest and quiet worship. Please turn your cell phone ringer, messaging and sound effects off. Keep conversations and distractions to a minimum (or take outside the chapel).
And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping; and he said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour?” – Matthew 26:40

“This hour that you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament may be spent in any way you wish. You may bring prayer books, read the Bible, pray the Rosary, or just sit, relax and enjoy the peace that comes from being in His presence. You may feel you can’t pray well. Don’t let this discourage you. The fact that you came to spend time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament pleases Him very much and is in itself a prayer of faith.”
Adoration is a highly personal devotion, but hourly coverage is a team effort. Our individual and collective goal and first priority as adorers is to make sure Jesus never gets left alone. When you commit to an hour with Jesus, you become part of an hourly adorer “team” that’s responsible for covering the hour. In the event that you or another team member can’t make it to the hour, team communication lets you know someone will be there to stay and pray with Jesus.

Please keep this info in your phone, email, etc so you have it in times of need.
You must let someone know, asap. Use the following method:
but Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” – Matthew 19:14
We encourage families to commit to a weekly hour.
Husbands and wives (esp those with small children) should be pushing their spouse out the door for a rejuvenating hour of uninterrupted silence and prayer at the feet of Our Lord. Parents should be encouraging older children and teens to forge a personal connection with Jesus. A family can rotate the hour among themselves in any variety of ways: e.g., spouses can take individual turns, spouses can go together as a “date,” spouses can take turns bringing children, the whole family can attend together, teens can go alone, etc.
Babies and small children are welcome in our chapel. Use the same prudence you would at Mass for knowing when it might be best to step out for a moment. A helpful article for families with small children: How to Bring Kids to Adoration
Our Feast Day, The Feast of the Epiphany was celebrated with Bishop Cozzens, Father Dufner, Father Kowalczyk and Deacon Kim at the Saturday 4:30 p.m. Mass. Then over 200 adorers moved to the gym for dinner and a talk from Bishop Cozzens. He spoke about how to pray in adoration and gave us personal examples from his life. The other speakers were Stacy Noran and Sarah Herrlin. They shared their witness to entering Catholicism and their first time visiting Jesus in Perpetual Adoration.
