The Chapel will open on Sunday, July 18th from 6am to Midnight every day. The Nighttime Adorers moved to Day and Evening Hours to help open the Chapel as quickly as possible. When these hours are secure the Coordinators will work on opening the Night Hours and the previous people will be given the opportunity to move back to those slots.
We will begin our 23rd Year of Perpetual Adoration. This is made possible by people who make a commitment to cover the same hour every week. It is a devotion very pleasing to the Lord.
Once the Chapel is open, Jesus can never be left alone so we are working on scheduling two people in every hour. The two people work as a team covering for each other to make sure that at least one person is present in that hour.
There is a list of “Second Persons Needed” on the Adoration Board at the entrance of the church.
“May the Lord be praised, adored and glorified throughout the world until the end of time.”
THIS DEVOTION BENEFITS THE WHOLE WORLD!
Jesus showed St. Faustina a beautiful vision of what happens when we enter the Chapel to adore, praise and love Him. He showed her the vision that each time a person enters the chapel and visits Jesus in the monstrance, Divine Rays of Love and Mercy burst forth and encircle the world and everyone in it with graces and blessings! Through Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Jesus unleashed His rays of healing upon us, our families and the whole world.
In 1993, St. John Paul II expressed the desire to spread Perpetual Adoration, with permanent exposition of the Blessed Sacrament in all parishes and Christian communities throughout the world. In the great Jubilee Year of 2000, He called us to make the Eucharist more known, loved and adored than ever before. He said, "May our adoration never cease!" This is precisely what Perpetual Adoration is; adoration that never ceases.
Quotes from St. John Paul II:
"The best, the surest and the most effective way of establishing everlasting peace on the face of the earth is through the Perpetual Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament."
"In Eucharistic Adoration we meet the merciful love of God that passes through the Heart of Jesus Christ."
"Remaining in silence before the Blessed Sacrament, it is Christ totally and really present whom we discover, whom we adore and with whom we are in contact."
We often have extra hours to fill, perhaps you could help by signing up for a temporary vacant hour. You can see the needs of the chapel on the right hand bulletin board as you enter the church. Sign up sheets are available in the same location.
