What is Eucharistic Adoration?

Eucharistic Adoration is the devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ truly present, body, blood, soul and divinity in the Blessed Sacrament. Jesus Christ, in the consecrated host, is displayed in a holder called a monstrance, and people come to pray with and worship Jesus continually through the day and night.

Why Adore?

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI wrote, "A person cannot communicate with another person without knowing him. Communicating with Christ therefore demands that we gaze on him, allow him to gaze on us, listen to him, get to know him. Adoration is simply the personal aspect of Communion."

Urgent Need for More Adorers!

Currently we are in need of prayer partners for a number of hours during the week. If you are interested in becoming a Eucharistic Adoration prayer partner for an hour, have a question of what a prayer partner does, or would be willing to be an occasional substitute adorer, please contact Jeanne Van Drasek at 763-497-5886. Review our complete list of days and hours for which we need prayer partners, then contact the appropriate person if interested.  Time with the Lord is precious; please help if you can.

What Do You Do During Adoration?

Recite your favorite prayers; read the Bible; contemplate acts of faith, hope, charity, thanksgiving and reparation; pray a rosary; or do whatever prayerful devotion suits you before Our Lord. You can just sit and simply keep Him company, as you would a dear friend.
