Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is visiting and spending time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament exposed in the Monstrance. It is an expression of our love for Jesus, who loves us so much that He never wants to leave us and stays with us day and night in the Blessed Sacrament. Our Lord says, “Behold I am with you always.” This visit to the Blessed Sacrament is one of the great treasures of the Catholic Faith, as it nourishes social love and gives us opportunities for adoration and thanksgiving, for reparation and supplication.

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is held in the Mosignor Cosmo G. Saporito Chapel directly behind the main altar and is open 24 hours a day, 6 days a week, from Monday at 9:00am through Saturday at 7:00am with permanent exposition of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament, the Holy Eucharist. It is simply our response to Jesus’ love for us, whereby each person is willing to spend a quiet holy hour of prayer in His Eucharistic Presence once a week, so that Jesus is never left alone, and the chapel is open for anyone to visit Him.

During Eucharistic Adoration, we "watch and wait"; we remain "silent" in His Presence and open ourselves to His Graces which flow from the Eucharist. By worshiping the Eucharistic Jesus, we become what God wants us to be! Like a magnet, The Lord draws us to Himself and gently transforms us.
