Eucharistic Adoration

Our Lady of the Pilar Chapel
Daily:  7:00 AM to 7:00 PM (except during Mass)
7:00 PM to 7:00 AM for committed Adorers

Eucharistic Adoration is the act of worshiping God as He is present in the consecrated Eucharist. Since the Last Supper, when Jesus broke the bread and distributed the wine, saying, “This is my Body” and “This is my Blood,” Catholics have believed that the bread and wine are no longer merely baked wheat and fermented grape juice, but the actual living presence of the Second Person of the Trinity. Spending time before the Blessed Sacrament, in prayer and devotion, is exactly the same as spending time before the living God. Adoration occurs whenever someone kneels in front of a tabernacle that contains the Blessed Sacrament, genuflects toward a tabernacle, bows or, in a more focused way, when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for adoration.

Our Lady of the Pilar Chapel is our parish chapel and is found to the far left side of the Narthex as you enter the church.  If you are interested committing to a regular time of 30 or 60 minutes of prayer please contact our Adoration Ministry for open time slots and instructions as to how to access the chapel after hours: adoration@saintjoseph.cc
