Eucharistic Adoration is offered the third Wednesday of the month from 7:10 am - 6:00 pm with Benediction at Holy Rosary Church.
You may ask what is Eucharistic Adoration? It is a prayerful devotion that is believed to exist as early as the 4th century with St. Basil. The Blessed Sacrament is exposed in a "monstrance" (gold stand) so that the consecrated Host is clearly visible to all who come to pray before the Real Presence of God. There are six lit candles around the monstrance as a reminder that Jesus is the Light of the World. Jesus desired to remain physically with us until the end of time. At Mass, the gifts of bread and wine are consecrated on the altar by the words of Our Lord in the hands of the priest. The bread and wine have now become the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, even though its appearance has not changed, the essence of them has. This is called Eucharist. Jesus is truly present in the Eucharist.
Outside of Mass we come to Adoration to be with Jesus in the Eucharist (Blessed Sacrament), to pray to Him, to listen to Him, to rest in Him, and to keep Him company. Outside of Mass this is one of the best ways to develop or deepen our relationship with our Lord.
"Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in Adoration!"
~St. John Paul II

7:10 am - Concluding with Benediction at 6:00 pm.
Please come to adore Jesus Christ and discover the power of His Love.
"Without prolonged moments of adoration, of prayerful encounter with the word, of sincere conversation with the Lord, our work easily becomes meaningless; we lose energy as a result of weariness and difficulties,
and our fervor dies out.
The Church urgently needs the deep breath of prayer."
