Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration at Holy Spirit Church
When Divine Mercy Messenger, St. Maria Faustina of the Blessed Sacrament, was praying before Jesus in the Holy Eucharist, he showed her a vision. Each time a person entered the chapel and visited Jesus exposed in a monstrance, she saw His Divine Rays of Love and Mercy burst forth and encircle the whole world and everyone in it with graces and blessings! Jesus told her, “I want Adoration to take place…for the intention of imploring Mercy for the world” (Divine Mercy Diary, 1070).
Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration helps people to be more personally involved with Christ, because it makes the Eucharist more central in their lives. By spending time with Jesus in the Eucharist, one is able to establish a truly personal relationship with Him.
A Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Chapel was established at the Church of the Holy Spirit in 1995. We started in a small room at the end of the education wing on the east side. Because adoration was very popular, we eventually enlarged the room to accommodate more visitors and adorers. We had coverage of the chapel 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When we built the new church, we incorporated the Adoration chapel into our day chapel. It is now much larger and can accommodate many more adorers and visitors. The day chapel entrance is located at the west end of our main church, with a separate entrance and convenient parking.
We are presently short of our goal of coverage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we need help in filling the open hours. Please consider joining us as a regular adorer by committing to an hour a week. If you cannot make a weekly commitment, then perhaps biweekly or even monthly would better fit your schedule.
