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).
