PERPETUAL ADORATION CHAPEL
“Could you not watch one hour with me?”
St. Paul's has had Perpetual Adoration for 22 years. Every hour of the day and night is covered by people who make a commitment to cover the same hour every week. It is a devotion very pleasing to the Lord.
When St. Faustina 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 world and everyone in it with graces and blessings! Through Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration Jesus unleashes 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.
