Eucharistic Adoration

March 17, 2019: Because of a declining number of Eucharistic Adorers – due to age, illness and death – and with very few newer adorers available despite numerous attempts to recruit new adorers – a decision had to be made to reduce the number of hours of Eucharistic Exhibition, Beginning on April 1st, Adoration will close at 8PM instead of the present 9PM. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament will continue Monday thru Friday from 1 to 8PM. The exposition of the Eucharistic bread reminds us of Christ’s real presence and invites us to deepen our communion with him through prayer. But though our prayer may be silent and private, we must always remember that it is not an end in itself. Like Jesus, who prayer alone to His Father through the night (Luke 6,112) and then plunged into his daily activity of proclaiming, healing and bringing God’s love to others, we must do the same. Time spent in adoration of the Blessed Sacrament gives us the grace to spend time in the service of others. For 17 years our parish family of St. Aloysius Gonzaga has been blessed with Eucharistic Adoration. Even with the shorten hourly schedule, there are still many vacancies in the new schedule. Would it be possible for you to embrace Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament as a regular adorer or a substitute adorer?
